I have never understood the attraction of LOA. Truly a comic way past its prime, IMO, and it always read to me like a love affair with rich, “compassionate” capitalists. But maybe that’s just a generational thing. Yet that generation is pretty much gone.

Some how I feel Calvin and Hobbes and even Peanuts will entertain future gens with greater ease than LOA.

Maybe I simply just don’t understand it.

I never ‘got’ LOA either, but I’m sure it was more relevant during the Depression-era than has been since. Harold Gray’s artwork is fine except the blank eyeballs, in what was supposed to be a ‘serious’ comic strip, are a little disconcerting. I’m just surpised it’s limped along this far. IMO, ‘Gasoline Alley,’ ‘Felix the Cat’ and ‘Mutt and Jeff’ were better strips from that generation, but that’s just my opinion. The ‘Annie’ musical was inexcusable tripe, yet millions apparently enjoyed it, so there’s still no accounting for taste.
