After reading the news that Gary Larson is resurrecting his beloved Far Side comic strip, it seemed only appropriate to buy a couple of Far Side books at the recent library sale. I can’t wait for my kids to start reading them (they’ve already been asking about them). They may not get every joke right away, but the ones they do get will become some of the funniest material they’ve ever read.
So far, my kids have discovered — and loved — Calvin and Hobbes. Following The Far Side, I’ll need to find a way to introduce them to Bloom County, thus completing the holy triumvirate of comic strips.
