Default Is Garry Larson's "The Far Side" returning?

Gary Larson said goodbye to fans and the absurdist universe of The Far Side with his final comic on January 1, 1995, and since then the real world has done everything it can to live up to the inanity of his iconic comic strip. Unfortunately, the foolishness of 2019 isn’t nearly as enjoyable as sentient chickens and oversized suburban bugs. Now, the 21st century might be getting both of those creatures—along with aliens, cavemen, clever cows, and women with beehive hairdos—because for the first time in almost two decades, the cartoon’s official webpage (thefarside.com) has been updated. And unless this joke is on all of us, The Far Side will soon be returning.

After sitting dormant since 1999, The Far Side‘s webpage was updated suddenly and without warning. It features a new cartoon of an explorer using a blowtorch to melt some of the strip’s most iconic characters from a large block of ice. Below it reads, “Uncommon, unreal, and (soon-to-be) unfrozen. A new online era of The Far Side is coming!” Since the cartoon itself is signed by Larson, it certainly appears he will be returning with all new comics for the first time in almost 25 years.

Now if we can get Bill Watterson to start up again the world will be all the more better.

Whenever I grabbed a newspaper, I turned to the comics section and had to read The Far Side first.

We certainly could use more comic relief lately, other than the "Impeachement machine"

The Far Side, Calvin and Hobbes, Bloom County and For Better or for Worse were my favs.

Spence did the same thing, but with L'il Abner.

Outstanding news!! I still have my original Far Side books in the basement in storage.

Gary has a particular gift with what is funny along with an incredible ability to communicate it in just a picture or two.
