Heavy Reading – The Complete Far Side by Gary Larson

Talk about your heavy cartoon reading! This collection of everything Far Side creator Gary Larson published weighs enough to warrant chiropractic attention after each browsing.

To be honest, it’s almost too exhaustive to really be enjoyable! I was a huge Far Side fan like everyone else, but maybe this is just too many Far Side cartoons in one place. Every so often I read a few pages, put it down and then feel slightly guilty about spending my hundred bucks.

It’s wonderful to have on the shelf, and it’s certainly a beautiful volume, but I’m finding it hard to really delve into lately, much less simply pick up.

But, if you’re a true Far Side cartoon fan, and you own your own forklift, The Complete Far Side is a must!

There’s also a leather-bound limited edition set available for a small fortune.

Ahhh… Good to be back cartooning!

Well, I’m back. I took two weeks off of gag cartooning to let my brain rest from writing cartoons for a while. It took me a day or two to get back into my old routine, but I’m feeling good and funny again.

I did sorta a goofy cartoon today about mirrors and that whole ‘objects may be closer than they appear’ thing. I wasn’t too sure about it, but I showed it to my wife and she liked it. Here it is…

Today’s Cartoon

Whatcha think? Too weird? I dunno. I like it, and sometimes you just gotta do cartoons for yourself too.

Anyway, it’s good to be back cartooning!
