Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Twenty years encompasses a lot of innovation and evolution. Think back to the 1990s . . . The Spice Girls, the Macarena, giant shoulder pads, and the premiere of Baby Blues. Now think about which of those phenomena is still a big part of popular culture today (hint: It ain't the shoulder pads). BBXX celebrates the fact that Baby Blues is still going strong and gaining new readers every day.

Inside this special hardcover anniversary edition, readers will receive a guided tour of all things Baby Blues as Kirkman and Scott share personal reflections and never-before-published essays, drawings, and photographs, along with 600 of the most popular Baby Blues strips from the last two decades. BBXX includes the highest production and design standards from the publisher who brought you The Complete Calvin and Hobbes and 40: A Doonesbury Retrospective.

This colossal collection is exactly what Baby Blues 55 million fans have been clamoring for. Balancing the humorous with the poignant through timeless and all-too-familiar parenting scenes, BBXX takes readers on a relevant and timeless journey through twenty years of Baby Blues.
