Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

  "Baby Blues us one of the truest and funniest accounts of raising a baby ever to grace the comics page." —Lynn Johnston, creator of For Better or For Worse

  Now that Wanda and Darryl are pregnant again, the doting parents will be getting the baby clothes out of the attic, preparing Zoe to be a big sister, and just trying to cope with it all!

  In Night of the Living Dad from Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott, the MacPhersons deliver humor at its family-oriented best. Juggling the demands of job, home, and a baby on the way, the fatigued Wanda and Darryl have the added challenge of Zoe as she becomes a mobile toddler. She walks, she talks, and she's obsessed with the Whistling Monkey Cowboy Band!

  Like the millions of new parents who have embraced this engaging strip, the MacPhersons have found parenthood both fulfilling and frustrating. Exhausted parents everywhere are enthralled with this on-the-go couple who manage their careers and child-rearing. Mothers love Baby Blues because they know all too well how Wanda's days have changed, from career woman to Mom, especially as she prepares to add another bundle of joy to the MacPhersons' already busy household. Dads nod in recognition as Darryl tries to help out and hold down a demanding job. Everyone cherishes little Zoe for making adorable even the most exasperating childhood antics.

  Artist Kirkman and writer Scott obviously know about parenting. You can see it in every installment of the clever, true-to-life strip they create, from accidentally losing Zoe at the mall, to listening in on baby monitors with crossed signals.
