The Get Fuzzy team is back in action, and they’re jumping in with all feet.
Our tough-as-nails crew has been assembled. Bucky Katt has a plan to take out the ferrets next door, and it will require all of his powers of disguise and stealth to get the job done. Satchel Pooch is going on the offense and channeling his inner assault-broccoli to defeat the vegetables before they defeat him. And Rob, the unofficial peacekeeper, is left to clean up the aftermath before the whole thing becomes an international incident. Packed with intrigue, covert aggression, and domestic warfare, Catabunga! is an all-out battle of wit and words that’s not to be missed.

For Better or For Worse's Patterson family has grown and grown up for decades on the comics page. Facing real-life issues with a continuously humorous, often poignant, sometimes sentimental stance, For Better or For Worse delivers storylines that reflect the life moments and family challenges that most people face. In this collection, Graduation: A Time for Change, life is transforming for each family member and their widening circle of friends. Elly and John face middle age and the decision to ask Elly's dad to move in. As Michael graduates from the safe confines of university, Elizabeth begins her college years with a surprising roommate. The pleasures of being the number one kid sometimes escape the often-lonely April. Throw in the engagement of Michael and Deanna and add another dog to liven up the household and you get a lot of laughs and a bit of chaos--just like real life.

Now, for the first time, Garfield appears in a kids' Spanish language collection! Hungry? Did somebody say hungry?

In this first-ever Spanish collection especially curated for middle-grade readers, Garfield shares that he is also always hungry for fun! Garfield appears in thirty-two newspapers in Mexico and Central and South America, including Ecuador, Costa Rica, Chile, Colombia, Peru, and Uruguay.
The Get Fuzzy posse is back! Bucky the arrogant and egotistical cat, Satchel the clueless pooch, and Rob the exasperated human are the members of this zany and hilariously entertaining household.Everything in moderation . . . The Get Fuzzy gang is back, and they’re leaner and meaner than ever. Bucky Katt (mastermind of mayhem) is on a steady diet of raw bacon, Beluga nut crunch, and carpa-cola in order to fit into his El Megaroid superhero suit—oatmeal cans are very slimming these days. The hapless and hopeless Satchel Pooch is in the kitchen perfecting his recipe for rubber chicken l’orange in a crayon/marker reduction sauce. And poor Rob, the vegetarian and ”owner” of the bunch, is scrounging for scraps in the midst of this gastronomical fury. Delicious and satisfying, this treasury of cartoons features a healthy serving of favorites from Clean Up on Aisle Stupid! and You Can’t Fight Crazy. Don’t feel guilty for polishing it off in one sitting. Honestly… . . . moderation is overrated.
So far this century, there have arguably been three breakout hits on the comics page-The Boondocks, Get Fuzzy, and Pearls Before Swine." -San Francisco Chronicle
* Get Fuzzy was named Best Comic Strip of the Year in 2002 by the National Cartoonists Society and now appears in more than 500 newspapers worldwide.
Satchel, the ever-hapless Shar-pei-Lab mix in the Get Fuzzy gang, is the star of I'm Ready for My Movie Contract: A Get Fuzzy Collection, inspired by his hero, Wonder Mutt. Rounding out this not-so-warm-and-fuzzy cast is Rob Wilco, a single, mild-mannered ad exec, and Bucky Katt, a highly strung, bucktoothed, laid-back-eared Siamese with an eye for mischief, an obsession with monkey pizza, and a neurotic fear of beavers. Together they form one crazy troupe for fun and mayhem.
* Three books, Bucky Katt's Big Book of Fun, Blueprint for Disaster, and Say Cheesy, have been New York Times best-sellers.
It was a bleak day when the Patterson's faithful 14-year-old sheep dog, Farley, died while saving young April from a raging river. Across the country, fans who read For Better or For Worse in some 1,600 daily newspapers, reacted with surprise and grief. Since 1979, Johnston has created an affectionate family whose members face real problems with grace and humor. Readers have accompanied Elly and John Patterson through the ears, watching them raise their children, Michael, Elizabeth, and April; commiserating when they dealt with aging parents; wondering how they'd handle a friend's homosexuality. In Remembering Farley, Lynn Johnston shares her favorite selection from the heroic sheep dog's life. This retrospective includes strips from Farley's puppy days to his dying day, scenes that capture the essence of raising and loving a pet. Remembering Farley also contains some new illustrations and quotes from some of the letters sent by his many fans. Remembering Farley is a tender tribute to a dog that many of us felt was our own devoted friend.
For Better or For Worse reflects universal family feelings so well it's translated from English into eight languages. What makes creator Lynn Johnston's portrayal of the Patterson family and friends so beloved shines once again in The Big 5-0. This book follows the blooming romance of son Michael and his girlfriend, Deanna, daughter Elizabeth's last year in high school, and John, the father, turning 50. The book overflows with the heartwarming and realistic family exchanges that have become For Better or For Worse trademarks.

"I laughed so hard at Citizen Dog one day that I actually got the hiccups." —Kevin Fagan, creator of Drabble
Man is dog's best friend. At least, that is the case in Dog's Best Friend, the hilarious collection of Citizen Dog comic strips from creator Mark O'Hare.
The humor of quick-witted canine Fergus and his hapless owner Mel are reminiscent of classic comedy teams such as Laurel and Hardy or the Honeymooners' Ed Norton and Ralph Cramden. Everything Fergus and Mel do, they do together—whether it's going to the movies, shopping, taking a walk, or sleeping.
By foregoing the traditional master/dog relationship, Mel and Fergus are in a perpetual—and hysterical—power struggle that's reminiscent of an old married couple. Which one gets to be "roller guy" and who has to paint all the edges when the two decide to repaint the living room? How many times does Fergus get to eat—six or seven? The two may never figure out solutions to these everyday problems, but Citizen Dog readers found out long ago that the results are always hysterical.
Anyone who enjoys slapstick humor, the company of a fun pet, or just plain funny circumstances won't want to miss Dog's Best Friend. Whether you're a child, a parent, or a senior citizen, it's a treasure of strips that will leave you howling.
Get Fuzzy makes the fur fly. This freshly amusing strip is a darling among readers who enjoy pets with an attitude. This wry cartoon features Rob Wilco, a mild-mannered ad guy who's guardian to two rambunctious pets: Bucky, a temperamental cat who carries a boom box and goes on spending sprees, and Satchel, a gentle canine who tries to remain neutral even when he bears the brunt of Bucky's mischief. Together, this unlikely trio hangs out together, watching TV, cooking for friends, and attempting the occasional adventure outside. Anyone who has a pet or even knows one will find this Get Fuzzy collection, The Dog is Not a Toy, an astutely witty take on relationships between the species.
