"Ziggy is a loveable, optimistic, funny-page favorite." --New York Times
Chances are the warm fuzzies aren't what you will get when you pick up Ignorance, Thy Name Is Bucky. Instead, you'll get LOL moments as Darby Conley pumps hilarity into living the single life with pets.
The family portrait: Rob Wilco, the tallest member of the family, is a single, mild-mannered ad executive who pays the bills and often the price, thanks to his curious and anthropomorphic housemates. Rob gives guidance and all sorts of "material" to Bucky, a temperamental cat, who clearly wears the fur pants in the family. Satchel, a good-hearted pooch, plays neutral, but usually ends up on the receiving end of Bucky's mischief.
"Thanks for Get Fuzzy, the funniest comic strip on planet Earth. Sweet-natured Satchel Pooch and the utterly crazed Bucky B. Katt are much more fun than Odie and Garfield." --Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly
* Three Get Fuzzy collections have become New York Times best-sellers: Bucky Katt's Big Book of Fun, Blueprint for Disaster, and Say Cheesy.
* Recognized as Best Comic Strip in 2002 by the National Cartoonists Society.

F Minus makes the grade.
Creator Tony Carrillo brings us a profoundly funny strip that asks the following questions: Why are we here? What is life all about? Can I take only one shower per week if it's seven times the normal length?
This very funny, quirky comic strip was chosen by more than 200,000 college students as the winner of the mtvU Strips Contest.
F Minus is a strip short on life lessons, precious moments, and pearls of wisdom. It tackles life's serious issues, pins them to the ground, and steals their lunch money. Then it feels a little bit guilty and gives some of it back.
"I draw my material from my experiences at a wide array of failed careers," says Carrillo. "Over time, I have worked as a pizza cook, Web site designer, dancing costumed character, portrait artist, insurance drone, waiter, custom framer, camel ride attendant at the zoo, and the guy at the airport that waves orange wands at the airplanes. As varied as these jobs were, eventually I had the profound realization that they all had two important things in common: each offered a wealth of comedic inspiration and there was always a creepy guy named Larry."
Life isn't fair. But it sure is funny in F Minus.
* Carrillo began his drawing career while attending Arizona State University. F Minus appeared in the college newspaper, The State Press, for two years.
* In December 2004, the strip was named the winner of the 2004 mtvU Strips Contest, as chosen by judges Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert, and David Rees, creator of Get Your War On, as well as more than 200,000 online voters.

In Pierced, Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman have hand-picked strips spotlighting Pierce, who is often the most popular (and certainly the most perforated) character in their strip. One of Jeremy's best friends and the drummer in the band, Pierce's audacious body art gives all of the outward signs of a fierce nonconformist kid living on the edge. But beneath the metal and tattoo ink lies the soul of the caring, loyal friend and animal lover within. Or as Jeremy describes him, "Face of silver, heart of gold."

Ziggy is a "lovable, optimistic, funny-page favorite." --New York Times
In the great tradition of Ben Franklin, Roy Rogers, and Forrest Gump, Ziggy delivers his own homespun philosophy for more than 75 million devoted fans.
Tom Wilson's Ziggy often finds himself on the short end of the stick. Short on hair, short on pants, short on luck, and, well, at less than four feet tall, just plain short, this beloved comic Everyman never lets life's shortcomings get in the way of enjoying the company of friends, appreciating the beauty of a rainbow, or experiencing the best of what life has to offer.
In Ziggy Comes Up Short, which features more than 40 weeks' worth of strips, Ziggy reminds us that even though we may find ourselves short on hair, pants, luck, or height, we are never without the ability to change perspectives, wade through life's gunk, and conquer triumphantly.
Ziggy reminds us that even misadventure ends in adventure.

Commenting on such timely issues as rising sea levels, degrading water quality, and environmental pollution, inhabitants of Toomey's nautical neighborhood include Sherman, an always-hungry, but otherwise typical kind of great white shark, and his witty pearl-wearing wife Megan, along with friendly Fillmore the turtle, geeky fish Ernest, macho hermit crab Hawthorne, and salty old Captain Quigley, who remains vengeful after loosing his leg to Sherman.
This is the 13th Sherman's Lagoon cartoon collection, in addition to two treasuries.
