‘The Far Side’ is Getting a New Online Presence

Gary Larson’s beloved one-panel comic series graced newspapers and magazines for fifteen years in the 80’s and 90’s. The panels included iconic characters like cavemen and cows in surrealist and dark real-life situations that readers could relate to in a twisted kind of way. For the first time since 1995, Larson is teasing new material for his comic strip fit to a modern world.
