A fun book of Foxtrot Sunday comic strips.

I feel that the Sunday cartoons here live up to the Sunday cartoons when FoxTrot was a daily series. I miss the continuing storylines, but absent those, this is still an entertaining book.

Since I was 8 and read the Assorted Foxtrot treasury from my elementary school's library, I've fallen in love with this comic strip. Garfield is still a close runner-up though, but it's been a while since I've read a treasury of that series. But back to Foxtrot.

I'm happy to say that Some Clever Title was worth the almost four year wait. There are a few solid gems in this collection that are sure to make any comic fan laugh, and I think those that aren't following the Sunday releases (such as

Some Clever Title: A Foxtrot Collection Blah Blah Blah, Bill Amend

Another Foxtrot collection! I think this is the most recent one, since it's all Sunday strips and Sunday strips only. I admit that I miss the dailies; it was nice to follow all the plotlines and see story arcs unfold. But at the same time, comic strips are so fundamentally unchanging in time and setting that the individual Sunday comic stories sort of works better for the medium.

Anyway. Amend has a reputation for a nerdy, funny

Another fun collection of typical FoxTrot nerdy/geeky/goofy humor taken from the Newspaper Strips and combined and collated into a book. A great series and one of the better daily/weekly strips in the paper. Up there with Far Side, Calvin and Hobbes, BC, Pearls Before Swines, and Peanuts.

Good as ever—classic Amend—I just wish it (like another of his I just read) wasn’t Sundays only! The dailies were really where we could engage with the characters. But, I can’t argue with new-to-me material!

A fun collection of the Sunday strips. A bit disappointing in the continuing stereotypes but Fox Trot characters never age or change. The swimsuit models inserted in the one comic was below the creator's usual standards.

This series never gets old! I was so excited to see a new edition! Considering these are cartoons, there is a great repore between the characters. Mr. Amend has always been able to give a honest report of the family dynamic. (and it's funny)

Good, but too short. I miss the daily Foxtrot comics

I used to love Foxtrot but after a while it gets a bit reductive. Surprising to see so many gender stereotypes in a contemporary comic strip.

We don't get the Sunday paper anymore, so it is fun to catch up on the Foxtrot gang.

It's Foxtrot - when isn't it entertaining?
Dec 25, 2016 rated it really liked it
This collection from after Amend went to Sundays only demonstrates the creative success of that move - some of these strips are the on par with the funnies the series has ever been, and the creativity is at a high bar as well (Les Phys is a personal favorite). Definitely recommended for Foxtrot fans, and having every strip in full color is a nice bonus too.

Love FoxTrot, not this collection

I love FoxTrot. I have loved FoxTrot for many years. Its geeky and nerdy and pop culture and funny. Its my favorite comic strip, so I was looking forward to this new collection. While this had the same things I love about FoxTrot, I don't care for this collection as much. A couple of the comics are not appropriate for children (particularly the ones featuring an actual photo of a bikini model and the one where beef jerky is fashioned into beef twerky) which was

I enjoy Foxtrot, but this one just was not as fun as previous collections. My biggest beef is that this collection has labels rather then having the panels arranged sequentially. I did enjoy individual panels, however, the lack of a story arc lowered the number of stars I was willing to give.

Newest book for the Sunday comics that were in newspapers in the past. The book has 143 pages. It was a fast book to read. Love reading FoxTrot because it makes me laugh when reading it.

Since going to Sundays-only, a new Amend FoxTrot book is a rare thing. This is a fine collection.
