I am looking for comic strips of the humorous variety. Rather than simply asking for suggestions I thought I would just ask you all what your favorite comic strip is.

Mine is a classic, The Far Side by Garry Larson.

Does XKCD count? That's usually good for an occasional laugh.

I also find VGCats occasionally funny (this in particular). You stumble across this kind of thing when you visit TVTropes at work.

Hands down, Bloom County. It's been my favorite for 20 years and I still find old strips hilarious. The 80's have come and gone but the characters are timeless.

For years my avatar was Opus Penguin.

hmm... the best straight up comedic thing I follow is probably Oglaf, but that is straight up sex comedy (literally), so...

Another one for Oglaf here!

wait, like newspaper comic strip? I could never EVER choose between The Far Side and Calvin and Hobbes. But online, I only read two; Nedroid and Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal.

You said comedy so I've another vote for The Far Side.

Calvin and Hobbes is my other favorite, but not for its comedy.

I was always partial to Mother Goose & Grimm. I love Calvin and Hobbes and Garfield, as well.

The Far Side and Calvin and Hobbes are my favorites as well.

I also really like Pearls Before Swine.

Oglaf is great. Also so NSFW that they tag comics SFW comics instead.

Cucumber Quest by the girl that did the Persona 4 comics is also fun.

My favorite is Calvin & Hobbes, but if you like The Far Side, you might also enjoy The Argyle Sweater

High five for some Bloom County love! I love Milo, Opus, Bill and the rest of the gang. It was such a surprise hit with me after scoring some collections off of a guy at work, now I have the Complete Library.

Calvin & Hobbes

My entire childhood was informed by those strips/books.

I'm shocked that no one has said it already, but Peanuts. It's funny, but it's also so cleverly and well written. Schulz was a goddamn genius.

Best. Strip. Ever...Calvin & Hobbes. As for modern hilariousness, Get Fuzzy is my fav.

It will always be the best.

If everyone hasn't already I'd suggest checking out Mary Worth. Far and away the best newspaper comic strip. I wake up everyday at 5:00 am when the paper is delivered just to get my daily Mary Worth fix.
