Lió: my new favorite comic strip. It's Charles Schulz meets Charles Addams, dialogue suppressed.

In the short time I've been a regular reader, young Lió has eagerly and successfully sought abduction by aliens; nearly trampled a doomsaying street prophet while driving an ant-shaped car contraption; costumed a space alien as himself for trick-or-treat purposes; met the Grim Reaper after school when the sly fellow sent him what looked like a billet doux; and accidentally nuked his home town by playing with fissible material in class. I can't wait for more!
