Its a Far Side book- and its way better than the yearly compilations that have come out. While this book only contains a small selection of Gary Larson's Output, it contains some of his best work. The commentary adds so much to the book, as well as his first draft sketch. He even alluded to the caption mix with Dennis the Menace, which is hilarious. I found it sad that some of the comics had hate mail, which makes no sense for a goofy comic. ( )

Oh, books of my past.

I've had [b:The Far Side Gallery|77281|The Far Side Gallery|Gary Larson|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1347379733s/77281.jpg|105673] books for as long as I can remember. I grew up reading these comics and giggling to myself. Every time I come back to them I understand some of the more 'adult' and scientific jokes and puns and the comics only get more enjoyable. This collection of five books is fantastic, and brings together all (?) or at least a significant amount of [a:Gary Larson|19928|Gary Larson|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1213672623p2/19928.jpg]'s work.

Collection of cartoons
  stevholt | Nov 19, 2017 |
While still enjoyable, Larson's cartoons are not as captivating as they were when they first appeared. At that time they were totally original and unlike almost anything that had been seen before. It's a testament to Larson's talent that for the last thirty years cartoonists have been emulating his style in trying to capture some of his magic. I rank him along with Bill Patterson (Calvin and Hobbes) as one of the all-time greatest. If it's been awhile since you've look at a Larson anthology this is well worth your time. ( )

I was quite pleased to find this at my library. While I feel confident that I have seen all of these cartoons before, even memorized some of them, it is nice to be able to go through and actually make sure that I've read each book. If I had to guess I would say that I haven't, but now that I'm able to easily keep track of this, perhaps I will before the year is out! ( )
