I become more impressed with this strip as I read more and more of it. It's not that there are any particularly standout panels here; it's just that in its 5th and 6th years now, I am aware of how consistently fine it is. Ketcham's artwork is simple and basic, but perfectly designed and laid out to complement the humor. And the same can be said for how the funny ideas match up to the art, bringing out the maximum in each. It even gets a little philosophical on pg. 467 when Dennis prays at bedtime, "...and make me a good boy. Or better, anyway." This also introduces Margaret, the little priss who immediately sets her sights on Dennis as someone who could be molded into future husband material. This strip's longevity and consistency make it one of the near-greats. ( )
