A very strange comic strip I’m really starting to enjoy. Today’s Lio by Mark Tatulli.

    Sometimes I feel “Lio” might lean a bit too heavily on the pop culture references but I must admit it has become one of the only new strips in recent memory that I look for.

  • Ouch!

  • thanks for the tip. enjoyed it. =)

  • That’s creepy.

  • Quiet_Desperation

    Lio is starting to fill that void in my soul left by the end of Calvin & Hobbes.

  • Josh

    Huh… This strip doesn’t really do it for me.
    Maybe the cartoonist hasn’t hit his stride yet.

  • Melvin

    Once Tatulli evolves past his Tim Burton/Edward Gorey wannabe phase, he just might reach Charles Addams wannabe status.

    Quiet Desparation, you don’t know how right you are. :-)

  • Geesh look at that kid in the second panel, his head is completely on backwards! That alone is creepy enough for me! It’s rare to find a comic strip that is funny AND well drawn. I too miss Calvin and Hobbes.

    Used to be you’d never see a strip like this outside the pages of Mad Magazine or National Lampoon. Now here it is, sharing space with Marmaduke and Rex Morgan. So-called “sick” humor has gone completely mainstream.

  • F. Dirk Wilson

    A strip like this may have run in Lampoon in the early 1970’s, but it wouldn’t have eclipsed any cartoons in a similar vein done by the great Charles Rodrigues.

    i sooo love Lio-and our small minded paper just dropped it–too many complaints!!! i used it teaching creative writing–the kids loved it

  • Judy

    Love Lio—————-sometimes you have to really study it to find the humor.

  • Sam Wheat

    I thought it would grow on me. But it never did. It is the amateur version of Gary Larson’s “The Far Side”, my all time fav.
