Tuesday Tally: Comics

Nancy & Sluggo, one of my classic favorites.
The Sunday Funnies was a weekly staple as I was growing up.  I'd grab that colored section and read nearly every comic printed there.  Some were classics back then whiles others have become the classics today.

I still enjoy reading "the funnies." Some of my favorites, from then and now included:
