"Surprise is the base of all humor, and nothing is more surprising than truth. FoxTrot has the ring of truth to it". -- Bill Watterson, creator of Calvin and Hobbes
Life is never dull in the Fox family. From bright-child Jason heading off to science camp to 16-year-old Peter mistaking his movie theater cleaning job for a role in the film industry, and from middle-kid Paige's frustrations with school to parents Roger and Andy trying their best to ride herd on their wild bunch, this is one strip that comes close to the edge of truth but deftly skips back with just the right touch of humor.
Now with Welcome to Jasorassic Park, Amend's seventeenth Fox Trot collection, fans can laugh at this family's fun like never before. They'll get lots of the Fox clan itself, but there are great highlights from others in their lives, too: Jason's silently destructive iguana Quincy; Peter's unaffected girlfriend, Denise; Nicole, Paige's partner in freshman angst; and, of course. Marcus, Jason's perennial co-nerd in crime.
Together this cast tackles family, growing up, and parental issues, all in a way that delivers a hearty and knowing laugh. It's an arena in which Amend excels; it's a collection of comics that shows it. Welcome to yet another FoxTrot winner!
The most recent collection of Amend's cartoons about the antics of the Fox family as they deal with life in the '90s--"the funniest family this side of the Simpsons" ("Wired").
