    I was a kid looking for my own identity Whatever it was it was going to be different than my parents' button down world view I wasn't a hellion so I didn't feel I needed to go overboard What better mentor than Gary Larson's slightly askew humor?Larson's work was subversive maybe not in a poignantly political way but in a silly way which is perfect when you are a young teen looking for something edgy than Family Circus and GarfieldI always enjoyed how he put a twist on old gagsBack when Larson's work was current and I was a mildly rebellious teen I wasn't looking to necessarily stick it to the 'rents like thumb my nose at them For example Dad was big into outdoor sports so Larson hit the target once with his numerous strips centered upon the man vs beast struggle Anything that poked fun at what they held so precious was gold to me But those teen years last only so long as does the comic value of Larson's work One can still get a chuckle out of it now and again but comedy has moved on I think Larson could see the writing on the wall and although I was sad when he retired and felt his uitting was premature looking back on it now I'd say the man went out on top

    Introduction Now I have heard many good things about Gary Larson’s famous “The Far Side Gallery” series but I never had the chance to read them until now Surprisingly starting with the third volume of the “Far Side Gallery” series “The Far Side Gallery 3” I found myself rolling on the floor with laughter throughout the entire volume What is this story about? Basically this volume contains many comic strips of Gary Larson’s famous series “The Far Side Gallery” and each comic strip has a character or an animal doing something hilarious in their situations What I loved about this story Gary Larson’s writing Gary Larson’s writing is truly brilliant and hilarious at the same time as the various characters in these comic strips are always doing something hilarious or playing off of a pun in an intriguing way I loved the way that Gary Larson takes puns such as “Primitive Fandango” and “Parakeet Furniture” and managed to twist them around by actually having the characters take the puns seriously such as the parakeet furniture being shown as human fingers with the parakeets perching on them In all honesty I really enjoyed almost all of the comic strips in this collection as they were creative and hilarious at the same time and here are a couple of excerpts that I considered to be some of my favorites in this collection “For crying out loud I was hibernating Don’t you guys ever take a pulse?” When a bear was mistaken for being dead at a funeral “So then when Old MacDonald turned his back I took that ax and with a whack whack here and a whack whack there I finished him off A chicken tells an inmate about how he killed Old MacDonald and ended up in jail “Neither rain nor snow nor sleet nor hail they said could stop the mailBut they didn’t figure on Rexbo” “He’s dead all right beaked in the backand you know this won’t be easy to solve” Solving the murder of a penguin among a group of penguins Gary Larson’s artwork Gary Larson’s artwork is hilarious to look at as the characters look exaggerated with their bodies looking a bit wobbly and their heads being a bit larger than their bodies I also loved the simplistic look of the artwork as it makes the comedic moments in this collection stand out even What made me feel uncomfortable about this story Probably the only thing problematic with this series is that there are a couple of comic strips in this collection that mentions “hell” a dozen times and that might be a bit upsetting for some readers Readers who do not like the mention of “hell” might want to skim over the comic strips that mention “hell” whenever they read this collection Final Thoughts Overall “The Far Side Gallery 3” is a truly brilliant series for fans of Gary Larson’s “Far Side Gallery” series and you will surely start rolling around the floor with laughter at this collectionReview is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog

    From a Midvale Alumni4 January 2019 – Adelaide Well it seems as if I have now read all of the Far Side Galleries so I guess I can now move onto something a little constructive – maybe Garfield Wizard of Id or even Calvin and Hobbes Well I guess I do appreciate Calvin and Hobbes namely because the main characters are named after theologian John Calvin and humanist philosopher Thomas Hobbes Yet despite that it is still about a little kid and his imaginary pet tiger and all they seem to do at least from what I can remember is basically play tricks on his parents Who knows if I end up finding a collection of the cartoons I might just borrow it I am referring to one in the library as opposed to being in a shop unless the shop is a second hand bookshop and they are going cheap – then I might buy it Well as for this collection I have to admit that it was a little disappointing I suspect the main problem was that almost half if not of the cartoons that appeared in this volume also appeared in the Pre history of the Far Side which I had just finished reading a couple of days ago As such I literally found myself flicking through the pages looking at the cartoons and thinking to myself that I had just seen it previously Maybe it was my mistake for reading the Pre History a little too early but then again that was because my friend had neglected to lend me this volume possibly because he couldn’t find it when he was loading me up with books Still there are a couple of good cartoons in this book such as the one where the dogs enter the post office in disguise and then in an co ordinated assault leap over the counter Then again dogs and postmen seem to be a favourite of Larson as well as dogs and cats Mind you the whole dogs chasing cats thing has turned out to be one of those myths because in reality it is actually the other way around Honestly I have even seen a full grown German shepherd leap out of the front garden and into the back seat of the car when a cat non challantley wandered around the corner Of course my landlord pointed out that he was a ‘chicken’ Still while I couldn’t find the first one this one is still pretty cool Oh and since we are talking about dogs and cats there is also this one those Larson’s cats seem to come across somewhat stupider than elsewhere Oh and we certainly can’t ever forget this one In fact I remember that a friend of mine even had a T shirt with it printed on the front Mind you there was always the situation where if you ended up pushing on a door that clearly said ‘pull’ people would inevitably suggest that you might do much better at The Midvale School for the Gifted

    I keep several Far Side books by my bedside which I read just before going to sleep I run through perhaps a dozen comics or so until one strikes my fancy and makes me giggle smirk guffaw laugh or chortle It is replacement for sleeping meds Gary Larson sees the world through the eyes of a mischievous child an alien an insect a snake an amoeba so they don't have eyes but if they did and just for one moment you can understand how anthropocentric our perception of the world really is

    Because I am a compulsive reader and because there was no ceral box to read I read this while eating breakfasts or drinking tea while Amy and I were on our honeymoon If that sounds impossibly non romantic think again homemade big breakfasts in an A frame cabin in the middle of nowhere on Orcas Island Bald eagles scree ing far above the mountaintop it felt like a mountain and deer munching in the scrub around the cabin Hummingbirds zip freeze zipping around the windows Amy drinking coffee and proceeding through the Twilight series on the cushy sofa Meanwhile I having found this book and wanting something to read while finishing my tea paged through the big volume It became my before dinner and after breakfast bookAnd eh it was alright A few chuckles I kept waiting for the big laughs that I sometimes got from it in its heyday But I found it to be uite repetative and not as revolutionary as it seemed originally The Far Side hasn't aged as well as say Calvin and Hobbes another comic strip from the same era Perhaps because Larson unlike Watterson gave into the marketing pressures to put The Far Side on every kind of tchotcke imaginable By now the anthropoligists' joke that humans are like animals and vice versal has worn thin Or perhaps facing our own extinction it just doesn't seem that funny in the first placeWHY I READ THIS BOOK Asked and answered
