There's no other way of saying it except that FoxTrot is made of awesome. Amen!

Shelves: humor, cartoons
In a few simple comic strips that don't ever use the words twin towers, terrorism, 9/11, or anything similar, Amend shows how the terrorist attack--or any disaster--impacts a family far removed from the actual events. The rest of this collection is fine, as usual, and includes Jason and Eileen Jacobson fighting about the merits of Harry Potter and the Ring trilogy. But the 9/11 strips are genius.

Amend is one of the funniest comic artists around. His jokes are funny and hit family relationships squarely on the head. He is a very talented artist, and very imaginative. I love to look for his "Easter eggs" in the form of newspaper articles with comic writer jokes and how from frame to frame the Fox's household picture and magazines will "move". Overall anyone who loves to laugh aloud will enjoy this.

Bill Amend is a great comic strip creator! His work is filled with ordinary family life and that's what makes it so great. Daily sibling rivalry, marriage obsticles, and family life is just some of the themes that he portrays in his work. A great laugh for anyone to enjoy.

Good, clean Foxtrot fun. A good pick-me-up when someone's feeling a little low. The book includes such things as Peter's most memorable haircut & the sweet yet humorous 9-11 strips, as well as the post-Halloween aftermath.
