dilbert is a man for the nineties--broken,defeated and living with fear. dogbert, his canine companion (do not even consider calling him a "pet.") plans to conquer the world, torment Dilbert and make us laugh as well fear our own dogs. The artwork is ,well, my seven year old son draws better, but he isn't as observant or astute--at least not yet. Dilbert the comic strip is the best one out there, bar none.It is worth any number of "realistic" looking strips like "Mary Worth" or "Apt.3-G" out there. We at the Bethany, OK library snatch the new Dilbert books when the come in and only let regular mortals check them out when we are finished, and when we feel like it. Dilbert is read by kids, adults, childish adults, and adolescents. And they all "get it."
