This comic strip has certainly improved as the series progresses. New characters have been added to the cast and personalities for all of the characters seem to have solidified. I think more of the jokes are landing as well.
One of my favorite comic strips. A funny side note: in this particular book there is a 3 day run on a few procurement jokes. My boss had been in procurement before transferring to his current position. I copied the comics and he thoroughly enjoyed it and is now planning to send them to his former procurement colleagues. I love Dilbert.
I have always been a fan. Adams is a genius. He has the unique ability to see a business situation and see how crazy and messed up it is. Now that I work in an office, these books have become my bible. Every word is true.
I heart Dilbert. It's been a while since I've read this, or others, but along with Get Fuzzy, Dilbert is among my favorite comic strips out there in the post-Far Side, post-Calvin and Hobbes world that we live in.
Great writing of a time and place that is already mostly gone. The artwork? Too simple, but there are lots of nice touches (such as when Dogbert is in an especially naughty mood, wagging his tiny tail).
Adams was born in Windham, New York in 1957 and received his Bachelor's degree in Economics from Hartwick College in 1979.
He also studied economics and management for his 1986 MBA from the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley.
In recent years, Adams has been hurt with a series of debilitating health problems. Since late 2004, he has suffered from a reemergence of his focal dystonia which has affected his drawing.He can fool his brain by drawing using a graphics tablet. On December 12, 2005, Adams announced on his blog that he also suffers from spasmodic dysphonia, a condition that causes the vocal cords to behave in an abnormal manner. However, on October 24, 2006, he again blogged stating that he had recovered from this condition, although he is unsure if the recovery is permanent. He claims to have developed a method to work around the disorder and has been able to speak normally since. Also, on January 21, 2007, he posted a blog entry detailing his experiences with treatment by Dr. Morton Cooper.
Adams is also a trained hypnotist, as well as a vegetarian. (Mentioned in, "Dilbert: A Treasury of Sunday Strips 00).
