Gary Larson's Far Side comic strips may return online

10 Daily Australia reports on what appears to be cartoonist Gary Larson, creator of the 1980-95 Far Side newspaper strips, planning on returning to the scene on the web:
Well, it appears the illustrator has warmed up to the idea of the web, with an update to The Far Side website signalling a comeback of some sort.

The site's homepage now displays a fresh illustration of a man thawing out a block of ice with classic Larson characters stuck inside.

"Uncommon, unreal, and (soon-to-be) unfrozen," the caption reads.

"A new online era of The Far Side is coming!"
It's not clear whether it's for real or just online sales of his past creations. But if Larson avoids political correctness in what he's planning, he'll be accomplishing something in an era where humor's sadly being destroyed by "wokeness".

While we're on the subject of newspaper strips, the Kansas City Star reported that editor Lee Salem of Universal Press Syndicate, the publisher behind strips like Fox Trot and Calvin & Hobbes, passed away at age 73.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
