Last week i was over my mother's house and saw her copy of "The Last Chapter and Worse." I have the five anthologies, but not that book. So, i decided, it was time to get it.
Low and behold, Slashdot mentioned the Complete Far Side. So, i got it from Amazon. Just looked at it. The box and casing are nice. The pictures on the outside covers are interesting. They are jokes, but it look half dignified. Cute. The inner pages leave *a lot* of empty room. It's really nice.
My only complaint (so far) is the binding. The books are heavy. Each book is thick, and the paper is sturdy. The binding however is pretty cheap. For something that costs nearly one-hundred dollars, i would have expected a decent binding, such as is found on other similarly priced books. The binding is not to be played down. Its what keeps the cover on, and the paper together. Considering that i like to review the far side, and that friends will want to as well, i bet it'll start falling apart within a few months.
OTOH, i can't wait to read it.
