A collection of FoxTrot comics that follows the always entertaining family of five around for one year.

Picked this up occasionally during the past week for some light reading and ended up binge reading the last two thirds. Amend knows how to make me laugh. Always a delight to spend time with FoxTrot comics.

No content issues.

A book from my childhood that I owned.
Mike Jensen
If Charles M. Schulz was the great cartoonist about the cruelty of childhood, Bill Amend is the great cartoonist about the cruelty of family life--except that Amend is not a great cartoonist. Actually, he's awful. His writing is far superior to his drawing, but sticking to one family does not give him Schulz's opportunities. I also do not enjoy the cruelty of his work, which seems rather less universal than Schulz. Two stars, but a third for some Shakespeare references.

In this collection of daily and Sunday cartoon strips, Jason decides to become a comic strip artist (for the merchandising!) but no one is interested in publishing a strip about Squishy and Squashy, the talking roadkill brothers. Meanwhile, everyone endures an endless political campaign, 1992 edition.
Found this while I was looking for another book. I'd set it aside because it contains one of my favorite cartoons, about a vocabulary test.

Other cartoons are par for the course (get the golf joke?). Amend tended to swing between long series of plotted strips and the odd one-off. Works ok, but it often makes it difficult to decide to stop at a particular page #.

I loved this book. It was great when they all wanted to leave cactus flats except Roger the father. I recommend this book to people who like good, funny, and a book you would like to read over again. I love this book and Dad and Joel likes it also.
