Ed Power’s/Melissa DeJesus’ My Cage which ran from 2007 to 2010 (and now is rerun on gocomics.com) didn’t make the cut in this article?

I loved Top Of The World, it was one of 3 of my all time favourite strips. I wish there was a book collection available of it.

I concur with most of the strips cited. I was a big fan of Franklin Fibbs. The concept was unique and the writing competent, but it was the artwork of Wes Hargis that really hooked me. King Features mailed me a press kit shortly after the strip was released and the art just blows me away.

I have really enjoyed the work of both Mark Tonra and Mark Pett, both have a lot of talent and deserve to be better known. The other four strips and/or creators I have never read.
