What are the best comic strips that appear in newspapers, or even online somewhere?

Cyanide and Happiness is pretty good for the online comics.

But as far as the "funnies" in the newspaper are concerned, Dilbert has to be the best thought out. I personally find its dry, sarcastic humor enjoyable. When I was younger I never understood the jokes, or never thought they were funny. Now I understand them, and they are funny, in their own way.

I haven't looked at the comics in newspapers for a while, but I do love the first two that pang gave. I would look at Cyanide and Happiness every once in a while. However, xkcd became more of an addiction since I loved the different types of humor being used. Each new issue was something different, yet there were enough sequel strips to allow for broader laughs. A lot of smart humor, too.

xkcd is good. SMBC is also pretty good.The rest of Pang's suggestions blow :P

Well they might be okay. Haven't read much QC and Oglaf is pretty clearly not for me.

I personally like Order of the Stick, but it's not for everyone. But I'm amazed. Am I getting old? No one has mentioned the greatest comic to to grace the Internet. It is the Internet comic. It might not be the best artistically, or the most clever, but it's the funniest, and it perfectly captures the early days of webcomics (I'm old, sue me). It is the very essence of an Internet comic to me. I still cry ever time I read the last strip.

It was what they all wanted to be. It was what comics today dream of being. It was...

The best there's ever been.

Pearls Before Swine is hilarious for some reason. Dilbert and Wizard of Id are great. Overboard is really funny too. They're all in the newspaper, but you can find them online.
