The 8th anthology contains plenty more laughs with the Fox clan. Covering Fall of 1999 to Summer of 2001, we get such great moments as Jason looking forward to the Lord of the Rings, Paige making high school flashcards, and Peter trying to get through Hamlet. This family always makes me laugh, and this book is no exception.

Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.

What can I say, I have been on a Foxtrot binge lately, buying the collected volumes when I can get 20% or more off at local BAM store. Enjoy reading several pages at a time. Jason and his family cracks me up! Enjoy where mayhem is allowed.

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.
Since I stopped being anywhere with a newspaper about a decade ago, and everyone I know stopped buying Foxtrot books maybe 6 years ago, the only Foxtrot I see is when Bill Amend does a strip for a webcomic i read. This was a collection, so I'm sure I missed some, but the Fox clan is still fun to visit and hang out with. Which after however many years of syndication is good to see.
i always bought the collecitons since they would have teh reprinted sunday strips in color. loved those easter sunday chocolate bunny strips.

Awesome, I loved the 2001 A Space Odyssey Cartoon, and the Pulp Fiction Cartoon made me laugh for half an hour.

Clean, harmless, adorable fun. Not hilarious or hysterical, but cute and pleasant.
Another fun collection of Fox Trot comics. Amend hits a homerun with this contribution.

Holy smokes, I giggle so much while I read these. By far, the best comics out there.
There's no other way of saying it except that FoxTrot is made of awesome. Amen!
Another great Foxtrot! Love everything except the stuff with Phoebe.
I really liked that the charachters are star wars fans.
