"FoxTrot" is one of the few strips left that can be funny without being syrupy, hasn't been rehashing the same old jokes for decades and doesn't politicize to such an extent that you wish it would be moved to the editorial page. In five main characters, Amend has an almost infinite number of story possibilities -- the health nut mom, the doofus dad, sports-crazed Peter, boy-crazed Paige and the frightening boy genius Jason.
Jason is easily my favorite character, and I suspect Amend created him as an outlet for his own inner geek. Strips like Jason's preparations for the new "Star Trek" movie or the one where he demands a refund for a comic book due to a piddling continuity error are the sort of things that only a real Trekker or comic reader could draw with such affection.
I've got all but two of the FoxTrot anthologies and I plan to own them all in short order -- but this is my favorite because the strips in here chronicle the period where my local newspaper started to carry it. These are the strips that first introduced me to the Fox family. I still look for them every morning.
For the parents: Being a teen myself, I thought I'd stick a note in case there are any parents out there, getting this for kids. Amend is somewhat disappointing on occasion. Example, in one comic, Peter Fox has a dream of making out with two Sports Illustrated models, who are in (cartoon, of course) skimpy suits. The two suggest they take the suits off, but Peter is awakened in the next panel. Kind of an appeal to the carnal side, but I try to ignore it. Most of the rest of the strips are just fine.
In conclusion, Bill Amend is a total genius and I hope that he continues to draw Foxtrot for many years to come.
