The Best of Hägar the Horrible by Dik Browne
The Best Hägar the Horrible probably is the best of the cartoons done by Dik Browne. This strip has been one of my favourites as far as cartoon features in newspapers go. I was first alerted to the cartoons by my dad who has been a long term fan and who would always patiently explain the ones I didn't understand as a child. Although Dik Browne has passed on, we can still enjoy Hägar's antics thanks to Dik's son, Chris Browne. This book contains only the strips done by Dik. One of my friends once commented to me that you don't often see Hägar without his horned helmet, and that is true. So here are a couple of him minus his helmet.
