Read full description of the books:
I was a kid looking for my own identity. Whatever it was, it was going to be different than my parents' button-down world view. I wasn't a hellion, so I didn't feel I needed to go overboard. What better mentor than Gary Larson's slightly askew humor?!
Larson's work was subversive, maybe not in a poignantly political way, but more in a silly way, which is perfect when you are a young teen looking for something more edgy than Family Circus and Garfield.
I always enjoyed how he put a twist on old gags...
Back when Larson's work was current and I was a mildly rebellious teen, I wasn't looking to necessarily "stick it" to the 'rents, more like, thumb my nose at them. For example, Dad was big into outdoor sports, so Larson hit the target once more with his numerous strips centered upon the man vs. beast struggle.
Anything that poked fun at what they held so precious was gold to me. But those teen years last only so long, as does the comic value of Larson's work. One can still get a chuckle out of it now and again, but comedy has moved on. I think Larson could see the writing on the wall, and although I was sad when he retired and felt his quitting was premature, looking back on it now, I'd say the man went out on top.

Read information about the authorGary Larson was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington. His parents were Vern, a car salesman, and Doris, a secretary. He attended Curtis High School before attending Washington State University and graduated in 1972 with a degree in communications. In 1987, Larson married Toni Carmichael, an archaeologist.
Larson credits his older brother Dan for his "paranoid" sense of humor. Dan would pull countless pranks on Gary, taking advantage of his phobia of monsters under the bed by, for example, waiting in the closet for the right moment to pounce out at Gary. Dan is also credited with giving Gary his love of science. They caught animals in Puget Sound and placed them in terrariums in the basement; even making a small desert ecosystem, which their parents apparently did not mind. His adept use of snakes in his cartoons stems from his long-standing interest in herpetology.
Since retiring from the Far Side, Larson has occasionally done some cartooning work, such as magazine illustrations and promotional artwork for Far Side merchandise.
In 1998, Larson published his first post-Far Side book, There's a Hair in My Dirt!: A Worm's Story, an illustrated story with the unmistakable Far Side mindset.
