I don't read "comics" like I did as a kid, but once in a long time I check out of the library some Asterix when I feel I need I need something silly to cheer me up. I read the strips in the paper, of course, esp. Far Side, Peanuts and when it was running, New Zealand's own Footrot Flats.

One cartoonist whose work I love is Mordillo. (At least the older work I remember.) I used to have several large posters of his in my room as a Ph.D. student. They're long gone; I'd buy some to replace them, but I doubt any are available in New Zealand. I still have a few books of his work, but I prefer the larger scale of the posters. For those who haven't seen them, his work has a very sweet humour that pokes fun at life.
