* NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead: When [[http://joshreads.com/?p=11816 Bil Keane]], creator of ''ComicStrip/TheFamilyCircus'', died in 2011, Josh was very somber, recalling the era when the strip was a lot edgier, and how the man himself [[SelfDeprecation had a great sense of humor about all the parodies of his work]]. Even the comments section has nothing but respect for the man, everybody agreeing that their mocking was in good jest, and that despite how unfunny many may have found the comic, every single commentor still respected him as a cartoonist and human being.

* EnsembleDarkhorse (In-Universe): Aldo Kelrast, naturally, but Josh appreciates pretty much any more colorful single-arc character that diverts focus from a boring main cast, especially if that character have the audacity to insult them; past fascinations include fraudulent Negro Leagues star Clambake from ''Gil Thorp'', the "drunken, vomitous" Celeste Black from ''Judge Parker'', or the recurring Frank Nelson salesclerk guy from ''Gasoline Alley''.
