Scott Hilburn's PUNS OF STEEL (9781449401054, $12.99) provides a fine all-color collection of Argyle Sweater single-panel cartoons, and is a 'must' for any ongoing fan of the panel or for former fans of Gary Larson's classic The Far Side. Far Side has been reincarnated here: everyday expressions, animals, and zany humor blend in a satisfyingly fun collection perfect for any collection seeing popularity with Larson's style. Parents and collections catering to them will find Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman's Zits character appealing--and the latest collection, DRIVE! (9781449401078, $12.99) offers sketchbook 14 in the Zits collection. Outstanding strips and panels capture the ongoing angst of the teen and his parental units, and make for an ongoing recommendation for general collections!
