Comic Strip / Adam@home

Go To

Adam@home (originally simply Adam) is a Newspaper Comic created by Brian Basset for Universal Press Syndicate. It centers on the daily life of its nerdy title character Adam Newman and his family, comprised by his wife Laura and his children Clayton and Katy. The household is rounded out by Gumbo, a dog adopted by the family.

Basset no longer works on the strip full-time, turning his attention to Red and Rover. Since 2009, most duties were handed over to long-time assistant Rob Harrell, the strip's current artist.


This strip contains examples of:

  • Twitchy Eye: Laura can get pretty annoyed at Adam's antics once in a while, and shows it by twitching.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Adam and Laura: He's nerdy, balding and out of shape and she's very attractive and pretty much his opposite.

Alternative Title(s): Adam
