The Comic Strip Doctor (David Malki) is a series of articles "analyzing and improving the worst newspaper comic strips." For example, on Beetle Bailey: "He is a soldier who never kills, in an army which never fights, for a country which never calls on him. He is a pretend grunt, walking emptily through a facade of Eisenhower-era Army life, suffering through all of the K.P. but with none of the K.I.A. ... He is an Army of None."
On Garfield: "In fact, it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that Get Fuzzy is the heir to Garfield's throne; the strip, by Darby Conley, revolves around a young homebody's interactions with his egomaniacal cat and dimwitted dog."
