Two of my favorite comic strips of all time, Dilbert by Scott Adams and Doonesbury from Garry Trudeau are now available for purchase digitally on ComiXology. Since they already have Bloom County, all I’m waiting on is Peanuts and Calvin & Hobbes to make it the perfect site for me. Well, actually I liked B.C. and the Wizard of Id too, but NOT Family Circle! OR Cathy!
