    One of Larson's finest!

    I have always been a Gary Larson fan and was sad when he retired!
    In the PreHistory of the Far Side, Larson explains how he got his start, using the humor you would expect from him. He also explains the inspirations for some of the cartoons and lets you into his mind, an ingenuous scary place, indeed! Some cartoons, even HE cannot explain!
    He also includes several cartoons that never made it to publication!

    Gary, you are a sick, sick man and I just LOVE your humor!
    PLEASE come out of retirement, please!!!!! I work with raptors and finding a Strigiphilus garylarsoni on an owl, would make my day!

    If you enjoy Larson's humor, than this is the book to pick up when you wish to put a cramping smile on your face! I suggest taping your ribs, as they will surely ache after reading this book!

    How does he come up with this stuff?

    If you enjoy The Far Side, you will be looking for someone to read this one aloud to. Has narrative and history from Gary Larson, and is insanely funny.

    Your Sick!

    This is what Gary Larson was told by the first major publisher he ventured out to show his work to. I guess sick was what they were looking for because it worked!

    I am just finishing this book and I love it.
