I work for a newspaper that doesn't carry Rubes, and I would do ANYTHING to have it. It's one of the few things that I always have up in a browser tab so I can read it every single day. The only way this gets better is with more Rubes. I got that with this calendar (thanks to my great wife!), so now I have twice the Rubes every day.
Leigh Rubin is a genius. His work is brilliant. I compare it to The Far Side, but it is its own strip. At times it certainly invokes Gary Larson's twisted genius, but Leigh is his own man. The strip makes me at the very least grin, often laugh, and occasionally roar out loud.
My problem with calendars is that I want to read them like books -- straight through -- but I'm trying to resist. Sometimes I skip around to read a few panels, but mostly I keep myself going day by day.
If you've never read Rubes, this calendar is a great start. But I've read the strip for several years and we have Rubes books at home, so if you're like me and read plenty of Rubes, the calendar will help give you another daily fix of this fantastic strip.
Get one today, and if you have strange friends or relatives, buy a basket-full and pass them out. You'll be spreading some joy and weirdness in the world, and it will be a better place for it.
