A masterpiece of comic brilliance, The Complete Far Sidecontains every Far Sidecartoon 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 Sidecartoons Larson created after his retirement: 13 that appeared in the last Far Sidebook, Last Chapter and Worse, and six cartoons that periodically ran as a special feature in theNew York TimesScience Times section as The Far Side of Science. Creator Gary Larson offers a rare glimpse into the mind of The Far Sidein 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 Sidecartoon."The Complete Far Side (c) 2003 by FarWorks, Inc.
