Comic strip suggestion for an english language learner?

My german friend loves reading Calvin and Hobbes (in english). What would be a good comic strip to get her into? What strips are still funny to ESL readers?

She has several Calvin & Hobbes books and has them pretty heavily marked with words she has had to look up. Her spoken English is good, but her written english is not. I'm worried that something like the Far Side might be too hard for her to 'get' - sorting out what is absurd on purpose and what she is just not understanding. I'm leaving Germany soon & I'd like to get her a new book as a goodbye present.
