Although it only had a short run at the end of 1993, Peter Kuper's (Kafka, Give It UP!) wordless comics strip, Eye of the Beholder nevertheless boasts the peculiar distinction of being the first (and only) comic strip to run regularly in the New York Times. More visually ironic than laugh-out-loud funny, the strip's isolated images of city life build to ominous, silly and downright surreal visual punchlines. It continues to be syndicated to alternative newspapers.
