Sunday comics

Yesterday, I recieved a box of old Sunday comics sections from early-to-mid 1990s from various (mostly east-coast) papers. Seeing that these are only about 10-15 years old, there aren't that many differences (ie Garfield and Beetle Bailey are pretty much the same as they are today). However, many of them have strips that's no longer in syndication (including Calvin and Hobbes, printed LARGE).

Here are two of those discontinued strips.

I've wrote about Thatch in the past, which you can read here. Here's another Sunday sample.

Dave by Dave Miller has what you'd call a cult status among comic strip readers. It was about a working man and his girlfriend. Tribune Media syndicated it from 9/14/1992 to 4/18/1999.
