Where is this Calvin and Hobbes strip?

I remember seeing a Calvin and Hobbes strip linked to from MetaFilter that I'd like to find again. Calvin's dad is reading a newspaper, and Calvin calls him uptight. His dad says something like, "I'm not uptight, I just get things done." Can you find it for me? I think it's a three-panel strip. [more inside]

Things like Dr. McNinja?

I'm enjoying the breathlessly ridiculous tone and pace of Dr. McNinja, which I think does a great job of avoiding the unstoppable-force vs. unmovable-wall dynamic of mainstream superhero comics. It plays fast and loose with everything, and has a fine sense of the absurd. It is only occasionally problematic (racist, homophobic) in its juvenile sensibilities, which is way better than most of its competition. What movies, books, and comics are comparable?

I am Looking for the Name of a Comic Book Series Where The Bad Guys Won

Hi there. I am looking for a comic book mini-series, probably from the 1980's but possibly from the 1990's. It is not a Marvel or DC series. The premise of the series is that 5 or 10 years before the series begins, a Dr. Doom-like character leads an army of supervillians and actually defeats all the superheroes, killing or depowering them. The mini-series ran for 5 or 6 issues. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

cartoon hero names A-Z suitable for monkeys

I work in a lab with rhesus monkeys. They need names. For reasons of historical precedent and notational convenience, lab animals are usually named alphabetically, from A ("Abe") until you run out of monkeys. For reasons of awesomeness, we're naming our monkeys after spunky cartoon characters. So, please help me come up with the best comic/cartoon/superhero names for each letter of the alphabet.

Portable comic readers.

What affordable devices are capable of doing this? Think Kindle, but for comics. [more inside]

Cheap comic books

In Nashville TN there is a great place called The Great Escape which used to, and may still, sell crappy old comic books for 15 to 25 cents apiece. Is there such a place in the NYC area?

What's this comic?

I'm trying to remember what the name of an comic strip available online I saw several years ago. It was set in college and the main character was male and outlandish, always doing crazy things, etc. Towards end of the run, he doesn't like the "script" so he decides to make big changes before the comic ends, including leaving his wife and child. Any ideas? [more inside]

Cartoon speech balloons

Is there a good way to do cartoon speech balloons? I sometimes toss together cheap cartoons in an old version of Paintshop Pro. What's the best way of doing this, aside from hacking up something with an ellipse tool? Are there usable clip art samples out there I can import & paste? I'm sure there's a Photoshop plugin for this kind of thing, but I don't have Photoshop.
