This book is soooo hilarious! The "Titanic"-themed strips are really good, but my favorites are probably the ones about Jason's nightmare encounter with Lara Croft of "Tomb Raider" fame. A few other good cartoons: Andy's mutant zucchini (sp?) crop, (Man, can I indentify with that! I haven't touched one of those things in over a year, when MY garden went beserk with 'em. If I never see one again, it'll be too soon!) Paige and her uncaring biology teacher, Peter's obsession with summer football training, and Roger's inabilty to watch football at Super Bowl week, due to Jason's playing of "Duke Quackem" on his "Jupiter 64". In this story, Rog tries to hurridly get Jason a memory cartridge to save his game, but gets him a "Rambo Pack" instead. Any video-game-system-literate person will find this series of strips hysterically funny! Great book, Mr. Amend! Keep 'em coming!

I have always enjoyed the Foxtrot series, and this collection is a wonderful addition. The strips are very timely, so the pure bite might have faded a bit -- for example, references to Tomb Raider and Titanic seem a little outdated now -- but they still have the power to make me laugh out loud. Seeing Andy surrounded by Kleenex and sobbing because "My Heart Will Go On" is on the radio still makes me crack up!
Another winner from Bill Amend. Enjoy!

Needless to say, this FoxTrot comic book is very funny. Needless to say, if you are a fan of comic strips of any kind, I would quickly usher a large amount of FoxTrot books your way.
The outrageous series in this book include:
-Sportschatter vs. Duke Nukem
-Titanic Craze
-Valentine's Day
-Power shut-out
-gotee magic
-finals week (always a FoxTrot staple)
-BittyBaby Craze
-X-Men the movie
-Jasondows98
-Football training
-mutant zucchini
-Tomb Raider 2
-Babysitting (for Mrs. O'Dell)
-Airguana
-First day of school clothes
-The 97-panel comic
-How to promote your comic
-Wind essay
-POST-Halloween craze
Now, you SHOULD just be imagining in your head right now the funny twist that Bill Amend puts on these. If not, well, you should!!!
Great job Bill Amend, you rock!!!!
If you don't think that getting 369 good laughs for 10 bucks is a good deal, don't buy this.

Great book! One of the best, actually. As I said in my other Fox Trot review, I just can't get enough! I dread the day Bill Amend decides to retire. May that day never, ever come!
This book is must for your collection!

FoxTrot is the funniest strip around. Too bad its not more popular. Bill Amend has a terrific sense of humor, and you'll see why if you read this. It has something for everyone from babysitting to video games to the internet to crushes and psycho science teachers at school! :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) Read this book!

The best of the collection yet...and I own every one! See how Jason deals with his first (though reluctant) crush! Witness the horrors of Andy's mutant zucchini garden! Watch how Jason uses a simple ultraviolent video game to spare the family from Roger's annual Superbowl insanity! Be prepared to laugh until your crazy as a Fox... Trot!
