Kerry D. Soper reminds us of The Far Side's groundbreaking qualities and cultural significance in Gary Larson and "The Far Side." In the 1980s, Gary Larson (b. 1950) shook up a staid comics page by introducing a set of aesthetic devices, comedic tones, and philosophical frames that challenged and delighted many readers, even while upsetting and confusing others. His irreverent, single panels served as an alternative reality to the tame comedy of the family-friendly newspaper comics page, as well as the pervasive, button-down consumerism and conformity of the Reagan era. In this first full study of Larson's art, Soper follows the arc of the cartoonist's life and career, describing the aesthetic and comedic qualities of his work, probing the business side of his success, and exploring how The Far Side brand as a whole--with its iconic characters and accompanying set of comedic and philosophical frames--connected with its core readers. In effect, Larson reinvented his medium by creatively working within, pushing against, and often breaking past institutional, aesthetic, comedic, and philosophical parameters. Due to the comic's great success, it opened the door for additional alternative voices in comics and other popular mediums. With its intentionally awkward, minimalistic lines and its morbid humor, The Far Side expanded Americans' comedic palette and inspired up-and-coming cartoonists, comedians, and filmmakers. Soper re-creates the cultural climate and media landscape in which The Far Side first appeared and thrived, then assesses how it impacted worldviews and shaped the comedic sensibilities of a generation of cartoonists, comedy writers, and everyday fans.

The far side of the Moon, also called the "dark side of the Moon" was unknown to humanity until the Luna and Lunar Orbiter pictures were returned to Earth. This wonderful book contains beautiful photographs and newly-assembled mosaic images of the far side of the Moon, cleaned of transmission, imaging stripes and processing artifacts by today’s computer technology. Byrne’s superb analysis documents the appearance of the features of the far side with beautiful pictures from Lunar Orbiter. Until now, the far side Lunar Orbiter photos have only been available with strong reconstruction lines, but appear here for the first time as complete photographs, unmarred by imaging and processing artifacts.

Over the weekend of 24 June 1996, in the pleasant Victorian holiday town of Harrogate in Northern England, three horrific murders were committed. Although similar, the police believed them to be unconnected. However, as this story unfolds it would seem that they were connected but not in the way it would seem. It would appear they were committed by three unassociated individuals. The first was a beautiful, brilliant student doctor about to become qualified. She had been savagely beaten, raped, and then strangled. Vanessa Machin was twenty-five and a student doctor, who was on the threshold of a medical careera beautiful girl, full of life and vitality. She was found raped and brutally bashed on Saturday morning under bushes near the Church of Christ on the stray (a large grass area in the town). Her injuries were so severe, they shocked the detectives investigating. The second was a young girl with Downs syndrome. She was pleasant and friendly. A funny-looking mongol with her face beaten beyond recognition. She had chocked on her own blood and vomit. Shirley Wilson was a Downs syndrome girl; a dumpy girl so severely beaten that she was unrecongnisable and dumped near the river at Canal Road. This was the next victim found on Sunday morning. Her identity had to be sought by dental records. The third was an ordinary pretty young girl. The attractive twenty-year-old had been brutalised and raped, her injuries beyond belief. Helen Johnson was a shop assistant and like Vanessa was raped and beaten. She was found at Plumpton Rocks, a picnic spot on the Wetherby Road. Each of these girls were found within half a mile of each other on three consecutive nights in the North Yorkshire town of Harrogate, a pleasant old town centred on the stray which was a large open grassed area left to the townsfolk by an ancient philanthropist. Not since the Yorkshire Ripper had such brutality surfaced. Harrogate Police had no precedence for murders like these as nothing like this had happened since the Yorkshire Ripper days, ten years earlier. But Peter Sutcliffe, the Yorkshire Ripper, was behind bars leaving them baffled. They could find no witnesses or connections between these three girls. Forensics in 1996 was not as sophisticated as it is today, and they could find no clues as to who or why these crimes were committed
