Insightful comic strip, often poking fun at comtemporary religion and governemnt (and society in general). If one should ever encounter an obscure superhero known as Obviousman, know that he was born out of this comic strip.
Non Sequitur is a philosophical comic strip that effectively combines humor and wonderful insight.
