Mark Tatulli’s “Lio” — the often-macabre pantomime strip from Universal Press Syndicate — received very high praise in The Comics Journal’s April issue.

“‘Lio’ is … the best comic strip since ‘Calvin and Hobbes,'” Chris Mautner wrote in a review of the collection of “Lio” strips called “Happiness Is a Squishy Cephalopod” (Andrews McMeel Publishing).

“Calvin and Hobbes,” of course, was the highly praised comic Bill Watterson did for Universal from 1985 to 1996.

Universal, which began syndicating “Lio” in 2006, also distributes Tatulli’s “Heart of the City” strip.
