Gary Larson’s The Far Side Is Now Online!

If social sharing had been measured during the fifteen year run of The Far Side, Gary Larson’s creation would rank as the “most shared” of all time. From science labs to dorm rooms, mail rooms to executive suites, The Far Side worked its way into our lives and invited us into a whole new world: brilliant, bold, and bizarre. The iconic comic panel has never been authorized to be available online. Until now. TheFarSide.com, the only official website, can be viewed HERE. 

To the delight of legions of fans, TheFarSide.com celebrates Larson’s twisted, irreverent genius as never before. The digital destination site debuts today, December 17, 2019.

An unparalleled comic masterpiece, The Far Side revolutionized conventional considerations of humor in general, and of comics in particular. Its impact and influence cannot be overestimated; the panel has been revered by fans from all walks of life and every corner of the world. At the time of Larson’s retirement from daily syndication, The Far Side appeared in nearly two thousand newspapers; over the years, more than forty million books and seventy-seven million calendars have been sold, and it has been translated into more than seventeen languages. 

The Far Side is without peer — no need for a reboot, remake, or sequel — just a new way to discover and enjoy. Highlights of the new site will include:

-The Daily Dose, an ever-changing, random selection of cartoons from The Far Side
-A weekly themed comic collection
-Sketches and doodles from Larson’s sketchbooks
-Periodic unveiling of new work by Larson

Passionate throngs of established fans will be thrilled, but so will an entirely new generation of soon-to-be devotees. The Far Side has been a cross-generational and cross-demographic favorite since its origin, and TheFarSide.com will fuel its appeal to an even broader enthusiastic audience.

DC Commemorates 80 Years Of Batman With Mural Art Series In Major Cities

Heading into the summer celebrations of Batman 80th, DC is bringing fans a series of murals inspired by The World’s Greatest Detective in four cities across the country. The first mural was unveiled last week in Seattle at the city’s landmark music venue, The Crocodile. Painted by locally celebrated artist, Joey Nix, the 10-foot painting is currently on display for fans to visit through the end of June. Batman also appeared in a life-size mural that was revealed today in Bentonville at 116 E. Central Ave. by local muralist, Octavio Logo. Additional installations from a collection of local artists will also debut in Dallas and at the Warner Bros. Studios lot in Burbank later this summer.

Featuring locally-inspired iterations of the iconic Bat symbol, fans can visit the Instagrammable murals and pose in front of giant Bat wings to celebrate Batman in their city and share photos on social media with the hashtag, #LongLiveTheBat. Local artists in the various cities will pay homage to Batman’s 80-year legacy in pop culture through the immersive murals.

One of Seattle’s most prominent muralists, Joey Nix is behind the Emerald City’s newest tribute to the Dark Knight. Known for his photorealistic style in portraits of local heroes, Nix focuses on emotional realism by highlighting personal stories and revealing the inner truths of his subjects. As a longtime advocate for the Seattle graffiti art and mural scene, Nix has also curated an alley beautification program in the local neighborhood of Belltown, featuring artwork by well-known muralists from around the world.

Acclaimed Mexican artist, Octavio Logo brings his signature dramatic style to the Batman mural in Bentonville, mixing vivid colors with bold designs. Growing up in Mexico City, Logo is known for combining his cultural experiences in Mexico and the U.S. through street art, using elements of magical realism and incorporating social commentary into his work. Logo has been contributing to the Bentonville street art scene since 2012, where he actively participates in public murals, local art exhibits, galleries and more.
