Now all we need is our own newspaper, like the Moonies have: at-home dads now have a corner of the comics page. A gentleman named Todd Schowalter has created a new strip, Barcley & Co., about the (hopefully) comic life of an at-home dad. Some samples are posted here. I think it may be too early to pass judgment on the quality of the humor -- not the standards of the genre have been especially high lately -- and I'm curious to see where this gets picked up.

It's worth noting that Barcley will not be the first at-home dad to inhabit the funny pages. That title goes to Stuart of Dykes to Watch Out For. Unfortunately, the strip is unlikely to get wedged between Garfield and Blondie in your local paper ...
