The Fox household is a non-stop, always funny, battleground: Kids, parents, and a pet iguana collide with each other and with the trappings of our times in ways that are at once surprising and yet familiar to us all. Readers young and old see themselves in this work, and readers young and old are fast becoming hooked.
This treasury, FoxTrot En Masse, contains all the cartoons from Black Bart Says Draw and Eight Yards, Down and Out.
Like a hot latte on a cold, rainy day, Café Adam is sure to warm the hearts of comic readers everywhere. In this sixth collection, cartoonist Brian Basset focuses on a whole host of compatriots who hang out at the local coffeehouse, log in remotely, and compare work-at-home notes.
The Fab Four of the funny pages come together again-this time in their first book treasury.
Rat, Pig, Zebra, and Goat, the central characters of Pearls Before Swine, are back in Sgt. Piggy's Lonely Hearts Club Comic, the first Pearls Before Swine treasury-supersized for your enjoyment.
But this is no ordinary cartoon treasury. Like the influential Beatles album that inspired the book's title, Sgt. Piggy is full of surprises. In addition to collecting all of the Pearls cartoons that appeared in BLTs Taste So Darn Good and This Little Piggy Stayed Home, cartoonist Stephan Pastis takes readers on a VIP backstage tour of one of the most successful comic strips in newspapers today.
In Sgt. Piggy, Pastis explains the genesis of Pearls (hint: it didn't begin at an artist's easel), why he was initially reluctant to show it to newspaper syndicates (and the surprising reason he changed his mind), the unexpected responses from readers to his work, and which Pearls strips worked and which ones didn't (and how he would have corrected the ones that didn't). The result is a rare and revealing glimpse into the world of Rat, Pig, Goat and Zebra. Full of humor and insight, sardonic asides and unexpected truths, Sgt. Piggy's Lonely Hearts Club Comic is a book that comics fans everywhere can enjoy anytime-even when they're 64!
The antics of moody Siamese kitten Bucky Katt and sweetly clueless Labrador-Shar-pei mix Satchel Pooch are scarily familiar to anyone with four-legged 'roommates'." -USA Weekend
Dogs and cats can be cute, cuddly, and faithful companions. They also can be ornery, unpredictable, and hilarious. Get Fuzzy is all about the latter. In this collection, New York Times best-selling author Darby Conley has found uncommon humor and insight in our common, everyday pets.
Get Fuzzy has become one of the premier comics on the funny pages. The Wilco household includes Rob the bachelor, Bucky, the cantankerous cat with an attitude, and Satchel, the loveable-but-clueless dog. If animals really could talk, one would expect them to sound like Bucky and Fuzzy. Often, it's the subtle nuances of the strip-from Bucky's hilarious facial expressions to Satchel's dopey innocence-that pack the biggest laughs.
The strip's dry wit and razor-sharp reality earned it the National Cartoonists Society's prestigious Best Newspaper Comic Strip in 2002. Get Fuzzy captures the non-glamorous essence of being a pet owner in a way people who own and operate dogs and cats are sure to love.
