Friday Funnies - Liō

I first met Liō a couple years ago and instantly became good friends with him. He was originally created in 2006 by Mark Tatulli, who also does the strip Heart of the City. Liō combines the magic of Calvin and Hobbes with Addams Family values. However, unlike Calvin, Liō is never imagining his adventures, which makes them all the more interesting!

The most amazing, and clever, thing about Liō is that it's a pantomime strip. There is never any intelligible dialog and the only words that appear are either being written or read by a character.

Over the years, Liō has been dropped by some newspapers due to them having issue with its content. These papers apparently have an object lodged up their hind sides. I think it's safe to say, if you're reading this blog you'll enjoy Liō's adventures as much as I do.

This link will take you to the daily Liō page and you can also go back through the archives.
