Review Quote*"Explain him? No. Explicate him? No. Enjoy him? Yes, God, yes … Just don't o.d. You could die laughing." (Stephen King)
Review Quote*"Cartoonist Gary Larson carries the macabre to hilarious lengths." (The Wall Street Journal)
Review Quote*"A magnificent contribution to popular culture." (The Washington Post)
Review Quote*"Samuel Taylor Coleridge, in between opium binges, once distinguished poetry from prose by noting that the former comprises ‘the best words in theirbest order.' Gary Larson's achievement in The Far Side® is to have pulled off much the same thing in a humbler medium: the best joke told with the best image … there is no excuse not to have some Larson in your life." (The Daily Beast)
Review Quote*"Larson communicates a great deal of information in a few simple ink lines. The expressions of his characters are vivid and immediately recognizable … And with just a strand of beads and a pair of harlequin glasses, he can somehow transfer any animal-a shark, a bug, a warthog-into a dowdy suburban hausfrau." (The Los Angeles Times)
Review Quote*"In an age when black humor is a lost art, Larson's cartoon is an island of insanity, offering us theperspective of a world where the unreal is normal and vice versa. Its message deep down is a dark one - something about taking ourselves too seriously and strutting around as if we own the place." (Rolling Stone)
Review Quote*"Bless Gary Larson for his wonderful consistency in casting an artful eye on all of Earth's wild critters, human or otherwise." (The Philadelphia Inquirer)
Review Quote*"The unofficial cartoonist laureate of the scientific community." (Natural History Magazine)
