Okay, I'm fairly hooked. This gentle and charming strip takes a little warming up to; the individual strips are generally good, warm and fuzzy. It's the body of work that strikes me when I'm done reading a "Mutts" book. It's a rare cartoonist that can do this much with what is essentially a comic world of small scope. Not an overly ambitious strip, just a very well-done one by a cartoonist who is content with what he has created. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0740723219, Paperback)

In its eight short years, the comic strip Mutts has won the National Cartoonists Society's coveted Comic Strip of the Year Award, its author Patrick McDonnell has earned the NCS's Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year Award, and the strip has topped a circulation of 500 papers. So, what now for Mutts?That's exactly what the title of McDonnell's latest cartoon collection asks. What Now? chronicles the most recent humorous happenings of Earl the dog and his feline friend Mooch. As usual, the endearing pair can be counted on for laughs and charming adventures. In this latest collection, Mooch professes his love . . . for a little pink sock. "How can I take you seriously with a little pink sock in your mouth?" asks Earl. "This from a guy who wears a "Shnoopy" collar," retorts Mooch. Mooch's affection for his sock is so deep, he sings little songs about it. But the love affair comes to an abrupt end when his pal Earl buries it to try to end the obsession. Fortunately for Mooch, socks come in pairs, and he's soon reunited with "its twin sister."Earl and Mooch put their comic spin on a wide range of subjects, from napping and poetry to summer vacations and Christmas anticipations. Interspersed with its charming humor are more weighty messages on issues important to McDonnell, such as animal shelters, saving our endangered species, and other animal-protection topics. What Now? follows Mutts' well-established tradition of delivering creative style and the charm of yesteryear unlike any other strip on the funny pages today.
