Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
At first, Scott Hilburn toyed with calling his new strip "Pinstripe Cardigan," but then genius struck and "The Argyle Sweater" was born. Since the comic launched online in December 2006, it has been gaining new friends daily. Now syndicated in over 130 papers, Hilburn's cartoons render human foibles through the antics of bears, chickens, dogs, cats, zebras, cave men, cult leaders, and other assorted creatures. This collection won't cure all your ills, but it will make you forget them for several hours.

    Funny collection of cartoons.

    Hilburn must live next door to Gary Larson of "The Far Side" series. I have finally found a replacement since Larson retired. The collection has a broad range of off-the-wall humor that doesn't stop.
    In addition to the book, look for the calendars.
