4.0 out of 5 stars Another winner, 23 Feb 2014
This review is from: Unnatural Selections (Paperback)
This is the twelth Far Side collection (originally published in the UK in 1991 - I read the 1992 Warner Books edition) and although it starts slowly, it soon finds its rhythm and includes some real gems. There’s also a great little joke on the “other books…” page, where ‘Moby Dick’ has an apparently hand-drawn line through it. Of the panels themselves, my favourites included “Big Bob’s Ballbearings, Bananas, Roller Skates & Floor Wax inc.”, “The Dam Bursts” (the fall out when you put a Migraine studies institute next door to a Marching Bands school), Dog names, “You never see it coming…” (a man gets run over by the ‘old age truck’), the Click Beetle (serves Kyle right really), the Institute for the study of emotional stress (“Hey, I feel better already!) and two bystanders ruining the funniest cartoon ever. There’s also a five-page, double-spread colour section detailing the evolution of life on earth and some of the incidental details (such as Fred Flintstone) are superb. Brilliantly done, great fun to read and highly recommended.
