Still fun but no longer groundbreaking. ( )

Various of Gary Larson's gag cartoons from the early days of the Far Side's run.

It's not as good as later material but definitely a potent read - the weird, outlandish humor is there. A good starting point for getting into the crazy universe of the Far Side. ( )

I’ve always been a Larson fan, so I thought I’d check out the collected Far Sides. They make a nice brain cleanser before bed. A few laughs, a little irony, or a lot. Good times. The main thing that tickles me, though, is that I was 2 years old when this book was published. I don’t feel old at all anymore. ( )

As always, Gary Larson delivers. The Far Side is funny, provocative, and insightful, like all of Larson's books. Unfortunately, as with most comics strips, it's either all or nothing, love it or hate it. If you like Larson, then you are guaranteed to love this book. If you don't care for Larson...why are you here? ( )

The Far Side by Gary Larson. Either you found him funny or you didn't. I thought he was hilarious. He combined absolute stupidity with intelegent acadamia and a dash of outrageousness. Stir, chill and serve. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0836212002, Paperback)

This fabulous desk calendar is comprised of Gary Larson's offbeat, demented, and wildly entertaining Far Side cartoons. Every quintessential Larson character is featured--grotesque human beings, gigantic insects, and intelligent talking cows. Each week highlights another scenario satirizing the trivialities of being human. The Far Side Desk Calendar also provides ample space for planning your hectic week.
