"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
I remember stopping to browse a Far Side anthology in the 90's — my friend had to drag me out the shop.
They are almost certainly available in your local library; ours has I think 13 different Far Side anthologies.
The ultimate Far Side anthology...The Complete Far Side contains every Far Sidecartoon every syndicated --over 4,000 if you must know-presented in (more or less) chronological order by year of publication, with more than 1,100 that have never before appeared in a book. Also included are additional Far Sidecartoons Larson created after his retirement: 13 that appeared in the last Far Sidebook, Last Chapter and Worse, and six cartoons that periodically ran as a special feature in theNew York TimesScience Times section as The Far Side of Science. Creator Gary Larson offers a rare glimpse into the mind of The Far Sidein quirky and thoughtful introductions to each of the 14 chapters. Complaint letters, fan letters, and queries from puzzled readers appear alongside some of the more provocative or elusive panels. Actor, author, and comedian Steve Martin offers his pithy thoughts in a foreword, and Gary Larson's former editor describes what it was like to be "the guy who could explain every Far Side cartoon."
