Crazy Far Side

I couldn't be happier when I received this enormous boxed set to replace one that I lost in a house fire last year. Thanks again for the quick turnaround. If you people are interested in Mr. Larson and his craziness --- get it !

The Complete Farside. If you are familiar with The Farside,nothing more needs to be said! If you aren't familiar with it: this set is for anyone who's sense of humor is about 23 degrees off normal! Full of puns, sight gags, and "normal" situations, twisted to a different point of view. I mourned the day I heard Gary Larson had stopped the 'toon, but now, I have something to live for!

Cavemen, Dinosaurs, and Scientists oh my!

One of the most enjoyable exhibits I viewed at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum (Washington, D.C.) was a collection of Mr gary Larson original drawings. It was the perfect setting for these treasures. Scientists, cavemen, and dinosaurs Oh My!
This collection is a must have for people who love comics. While some might argue that Mr Larson's point of view is eccentric it reveals an a true artist (that not only thinks but has a big heart!) He loves his characters even when he puts them in strange circumstance.
There is not a review that can really do justice to the work contained within these volumes. You have to see it for yourself. Because you would not believe me if I tried to explain it to you. Ok. A scientist (you know this because they all have white jackets with pens in the top pocket) is intently working on a missile. Another Scientist is walking up from behind with a paper bag ready to pop it! That is why seeing is necessary. Besides the two volume set is so heavy that it can hold up a broken bookcase by itself!
Sincerely yours, means Johnston III
