Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott put out a very funny cartoon strip. You don't have to be a parent to enjoy this cartoon, but if you are, it hits close to home more than once. It's also nice watching the kids get older (albeit slowly) in a medium that seldom allows it's characters to age at all."

If art imitates life, then art could probably use a good vacuuming. That is, if you're talking about life around the MacPherson house. With three kids under the age of eight, things couldn't get much busier for Darryl and Wanda, who fill the comics pages with dead-on family humor.

Creators Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott have a special talent for distilling the essence of children, families, and married couples into a comic strip that, in frame after frame and strip after strip, creates a world that's both amusing and enlightening, in large part because their work mirrors our own experiences so closely. "Did you see the latest Baby Blues?" is one of the most-often asked questions among the strip's millions of fans. "It looks just like us!"

About the Author

Rick Kirkman of Phoenix, Ariz., and Jerry Scott of San Luis Obispo, Calif., launched Baby Blues in 1990 and have spent the years since getting the strip "just right." Jerry also writes the award-winning comic strip Zits and has received a Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year by the National Cartoonist Society.
