Synopsis

Hound of The Far Side is the seventh collection of The Far Side comic strips. All comic strips are in black and white. These are all single shots, not the normal 4 panel comic strips. The Far Side is a humorous comic strip that appeared in a multitude of newspapers daily.

The Far Side became very popular in the early 1980's, and continued into the 1990's, until Gary Larson decided that he was going to retire the comic strip. It was seen daily in hundred of newspapers and enjoyed by millions. The Far Side is just as the name imply...just on the far side of sane. Most of the strips feature humans, but not all. If an animal is the main character, then they are usually placed in the shoes of a human. Most of the Far Side strips deal with the stupid things humans do in every day things. Other strips deals with things that are just totally wacky. Either way, they make fun of us and everything we do. And since it is human nature to laugh at the misfortune of others...you will probably find this comic strip to be very funny.

 

Review

Hound of The Far Side will bring a smile to your face as you read it. As with all The Far Side comic strips, you have to have a little bit of a twisted sense of humor to enjoy these.

Most of the strips evolve around animals in a human's shoes. What would they do if they lived like us? That is what makes this comic strip so darned funny. I loved The Far Side when it was in the newspapers and I still love it today.

Gary Larson takes us into the funnier side of the Twilight Zone with his wacky and strange sense of humor with Hound of The Far Side. Cows driving by yelling "Yakity yak yak yak!" Ya gotta love it!
