    Since the all-too-early end of "Calvin and Hobbes," my favorite comic has easily been "Foxtrot." What Foxtrot lacks in the deeper, personal questions that Calvin and Hobbes sometimes asked, it more than makes up for in familiarity, whether it's family, sports, kids, pop culture, and of course geekdom. It's about as close to a sitcom as you can get in comic form. And it doesn't hurt that Bill Amend seems to have a firm grasp on the Star Wars universe. With the upcoming movie, I suspect we'll be seeing at least a week's worth of Star Wars related stories, if not more.

    I've got a few Foxtrot anthologies which follow the story arcs for the SE releases and possibly TPM. I'll try to hunt them down and post them for your enjoyment.

    Still staying off Foxtrot today, though I have gathered up a few weeks worth of Star Wars related ones so far for future sharing. Today we'll travel back about 5 years for this Close to Home one.

    In honor of KG, our resident Trekkie with the broken leg that we finally got to see for the first time in a while last weekend, I pull out a Foxtrot with a Star Trek reference. For what it's worth for those who don't normally follow Foxtrot, Peter (the older brother), inadvertently shaved his head earlier in the week during this particular storyline . . .

    It's not exactly Foxtrot, but it reflects my opinion of this half-@ss release of the O-OT on DVD with a 2.0 surround. It's an insult and he can keep that version and shove it. When he finally puts a real mix on it, then maybe I'll be interested.
