5.0 out of 5 stars For true Far Sideophiles only
This is a great book, literally as well as figuratively speaking. It weighs in at about 19lbs (according to my unreliable scales), so you'll want to be home when it arrives...picking it up at a depot could be a painful exercise! It consists of two lovely hardback books (glossy pages) encased in a high-quality cardboard cover. The quality of the books partly explains why...

3.0 out of 5 stars nice but not practical
I'm glad to possess the complete far side now but, alas! The two volumes are very big and heavy, difficult to handle: kind of two big dictionaries...
The cartoons inside are much smaller than the original Larson's drawings: so lines have become extremely thin and the halftone screen has lost its characteristic, visible dotted pattern. This ruins Larson's graphic work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Huge volumes., 28 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete Far Side (Hardcover)
This is just a fabulous collection and in a very attractively bound set. The books exude a sense of quality. My only real complaint and really it's only a minor niggle is that the books are huge, not something to read sitting up in bed.

I'll be really short in this review: The complete Far Side is one of the best comic book I've own right now. And not only because it's the biggest book on my collection. It's a Larson comics. Complete. Got the point? :)
cheers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Far Side Review, 6 Feb 2011
This review is from: The Complete Far Side (Hardcover)
I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who has a slightly sideways outlook on life. Very nicely printed this complete volume of Gary Larson's cartoon creations will provide hours of fun again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Far Side, 24 Oct 2010
This review is from: The Complete Far Side (Hardcover)
wow! one of the best comic in this generation, always with a different view of people, animals, inanimate objects, things, situations and the universe! Larson is truly is legend! This compendium traces the beginnings of his comic and art to the, sadly, last. A wonderful journey which will take the reader from one dimension to another. Definitely a must have for the true comic fan especially if you like the Far Side ( and who does not!)

Beautifully bound and printed version of the greatest cartoon of all time. I love the letters various readers have sent in - they provide the perfect commentary to Larson's spins on life. Priceless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crumpled yet brilliant..., 14 Jun 2010

This review is from: The Complete Far Side (Hardcover)
The product itself gets 5 stars - it's exactly what it is - everything by Gary Larson - so you can't reeeeally ask for more than that...

However, when I received my purchase, it had been banged around a bit in the post and the presentation box for the books has a big pressure-crease across it - which spoils it quite a bit, especially as it cost so much...

So - go for super-dooper packaging - it's a bloody big and bloody heavy purchase!

2.0 out of 5 stars beautifull book ruined by Amazon !!!, 23 Jan 2010
By 
Patrick P (Terre d'Ange) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Complete Far Side (Hardcover)
As usual Amazon don't care about his customers , the book is send with a poor box and without a proper protection. This is second time I experienced such a poor job, the other time it was with Calvin and Hobbes books. For the replacement they were able to pack the book properly, so I thought : OK they know their job now, I can buy another , but no it is like the lottery you never know who is going to pack the book you buy, and you never know if the product you buy will arrive brand new or in bad shape.
