Another fine collection of one of the better and more consistent family strips, and one of the few that sort of progresses in real time. No major developmental changes, but Zoe is in 2nd grade, Hammie is talking quite well now, and Wren has taken to climbing everything in sight. There is one fairly frightful sequence where all three kids have different accidents requiring a doctor trip, followed by an injury to Darryl as he rushes to the waiting room. But it's balanced by some truly funny strips, as usual. ( )

Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott put out a very funny cartoon strip. You don't have to be a parent to enjoy this cartoon, but if you are, it hits close to home more than once. It's also nice watching the kids get older (albeit slowly) in a medium that seldom allows it's characters to age at all."

If art imitates life, then art could probably use a good vacuuming. That is, if you're talking about life around the MacPherson house. With three kids under the age of eight, things couldn't get much busier for Darryl and Wanda, who fill the comics pages with dead-on family humor.

Creators Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott have a special talent for distilling the essence of children, families, and married couples into a comic strip that, in frame after frame and strip after strip, creates a world that's both amusing and enlightening, in large part because their work mirrors our own experiences so closely. "Did you see the latest Baby Blues?" is one of the most-often asked questions among the strip's millions of fans. "It looks just like us!"
