The planet's favourite comic strips, now on a Web site near you!

http://www.marvel.com

The biggest deal in the comic world, of course it deserves mention in this column. Though it's really famous right now for the X-Men, it actually has a lot of other strips that are brilliant in their own right. So, here we go!

The first obvious thing to do is to go to the comics page. There is a lot of stuff about the latest comics, critical reviews of different series (don't these critics have anything better to do?), comics for sale, character analyses of super-heroes, and the like. Then, for those who have lost touch with their inner child, there is the character profile section; here, you can learn all about the different characters that inhabit the Marvel dimension. This should interest you enough to look at the various comic strip covers, which are beautiful in their own right.

After this, there are previews of future issues, with relevant information about their probable appearances in movies and TV. You could also view a few sample strips in the "Bullpen Bits" section. Apart from this, they have a whole load of opportunities to buy comics online, and even play a few games. The site is extensive, but doesn't have the great design you're used to from the comic strips. But apart from that technical flaw, it should satisfy any supernatural cravings you may experience.

http://www.reemst.com/calvin_and_hobbes/

Calvin and tiger Hobbes are probably the greatest invention of the last two decades. But surprisingly, the official site loses out to this other, unofficial fan site.

Set up by a guy named Martyn, this site is really well-designed, with a lot of material worth reading, and numerous areas to visit. You could go see the Strip Of The Day, or try to see how much you love the strip by taking the quiz. There's also an Art page, which features rare stuff by Bill Waterson, the creator.

The site also features the poems which Calvin recites in the strip, as also the outrageous theories that Calvin's Dad puts forward. And for all of us who have wished and wished for a Transmogrifier of our own, go to the Transmogrifier segment, which gives you a random Calvin picture every time you click on the Transmogrifier. And be nice to the guy who set up this site - "ring the doorbell" and make him happy. After all, this is one heck of a site!
