My Favorite Cartoonists

  • Gary Larson, creator of The Far Side. He doesn't have much astronomy humor, but does have of science and alien humor. I love his take on animals:  what we think of them and they think of us.
  • Dan Piraro, creator of Bizarro cartoons is my favorite cartoonist, but he rarely has astronomy humor.
