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.

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.

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.
Syndicated by United Feature Syndicate, Get Fuzzy appears in 250 newspapers, from the Los Angeles Times to the Detroit Free Press to the Philadelphia Enquirer. Darby Conley's first book, This Dog Is Not a Toy, sold more than 115,000 copies; his second book, Fuzzy Logic, more than 85,000.When he was a child, Darby Conley used to wonder what his beloved pooch was thinking. That curiosity led to his creation of the hilarious strip Get Fuzzy in 1999, which has rapidly become one of the most popular cartoons in newspaper syndication. Showcasing the relationship between Bucky, a temperamental cat with an attitude; the sweet and sensitive dog Satchel; and their mild-mannered human companion, Rob Wilco, Get Fuzzy has cornered the market on anthropomorphic antics.
Anyone who finds animals both amazing and amusing will find this new Get Fuzzy collection one of the most bitingly funny books ever printed.
