Beyond The Far Side. author; Gary Larson. The Far Side is one of the funniest comics ever, and this collection is up to- if not surpassing- the level of excellence raised by the other Far Side comics. The animation is good, and jokes are twice as good as Clavin and Hobbes, and eight hundred trillion times better than Garfield, Which stopped being funny in the mid-eighties.

Gary Larson's The Far Side continues to please. These are the jokes great greeting cards are made of. As only the best humorists like Jerry Seinfeld do, Mr. Larson makes the reader smile and laugh the most when making us laugh at ourselves. In his cartoons, the reader will see the idiosyncracies, rigidity, and sarcasm of everyday life. His cartoons are caricatures: hyperbole. So that, in a way similar to Jerry Seinfeld, Larson makes us feel more confident and pleased with the humor of it all because we are not laughing at anyone's expense.

Gary Larson's comics are witty, poignant and soooo funny. I love his style. This book is the first I own but I have read so many of his comics before in calendars and online. Unfortunately, I cannot find any of his mugs etc in Germany anymore. We used to have one but it broke...
The drawings inside the book are black and white which was disappointing at first but the price was good and a lack of color really does not do the jokes any harm in the end!
