Not a lot to say about a collection of comics, but Fox Trot is one of the better ones. Never disappointed by these.

FoxTrot has always been a warm blanket to pull around me, quick and fun and very familiar. This collection lives up to that standard, and even improves on it, with several strips that I laughed out loud at in addition to the general standard of appreciation. There are some short series included (the Caribbeanny resort is one that stays with me) that work really well in their build-up and playing out. If you're a fan of the family, this is definitely worth the read (if you haven't read them alrea ...more

Foxtrot is a great Sunday comic series, and I enjoy picking these up when I need a little pick me up. Sometimes though the selfishness of the characters really gets to me. It's a silly thing, like Peter eating all the food, or Paige using one of her mother's favorite books to squash a bug because she didn't want to ruin her latest cosmo. At first these things didn't bother me but since I read these all the time over and over it makes me upset. Totally silly but that's the only reason this doesn' ...more

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.

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.

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.
