The Far Side ® Gallery 5

Politically correct swamp monsters, fortune-telling chickens, boxing crabs, cows relaxing in a hay bar, and other creatures wrought from the imagination of this notoriously warped and wonderful wit come into readers' lives once again in his latest collection of uniquely wacky cartoons.

    Fun to have around

    Gary Larson and the Far Side is really fun to have around. I put them on my coffee table and I let younger people who may not know that the Far Side even exist get a chuckle out of the books. I like to keep funny things alive.

    Biohazard! Hard laughing causing mutations!

    This book can be described with one simple word. Hilarious. I will laugh for hours at just one joke and Knowing that their are 150 more ones to go I wonder if I will make it to the backcover. Gary Larson is amazing. No matter how many jokes he has written he always seems to find something even funnier then the one before. Ever since I got interested in The Far Side I have always wanted to read the next book in the series.I'm going to be sad when he stops.

    Far Side Comic Readers Sick From Laughter!

    Just yesterday, a horrible thing happened all over the world! Well, not as horrible as hilarious! Everyone in the world who read Far Side comics were sick with laughter! Hospitals were overflowing with sick patients that couldn't stop laughing! The epidemic will soon be controlled, but until then, we advise you not to read any Far Side comics!
