The Complete Far Side by Gary Larson

The Complete Far Side by Gary LarsonThe Complete Far Side

by Gary Larson

A masterpiece of comic brilliance, The Complete Far Side contains every Far Side cartoon every syndicated (over 4,000 if you must know) presented in (more or less) chronological order by year of publication, with more than 1,100 that have never before appeared in a book.

Also included are additional Far Side cartoons Larson created after his retirement: 13 that appeared in the last Far Side book, Last Chapter and Worse, and six cartoons that periodically ran as a special feature in the New York Times Science Times section as The Far Side of Science. Creator Gary Larson offers a rare glimpse into the mind of The Far Side in quirky and thoughtful introductions to each of the 14 chapters. Complaint letters, fan letters, and queries from puzzled readers appear alongside some of the more provocative or elusive panels.

Actor, author, and comedian Steve Martin offers his pithy thoughts in a foreword, and Gary Larson’s former editor describes what it was like to be “the guy who could explain every Far Side cartoon.”
