I think youre in for a real treat. --Bill Watterson, creator of Calvin and Hobbes, 2008One of the five best features in any newspaper, period. --The Comics ReporterOne of the few strips around where nearly every individual panel is stand-alone delight. --The Onion...it really seems like the inheritor of Calvin and Hobbes. --Art SpiegelmanI cant say enough in his favor, so much is my admiration for his work. --Pat OliphantMore than half of our nations population resides in the burbs. Knowingly, Richard Thompsons Cul de Sac follows the antics of four-year-old Alice Otterloop as she navigates her way through life at Blisshaven Preschool, the scene of [her] daily toil. Suburbanites across the nation will easily recognize the quirks and conundrums associated with house-lined streets, sidewalk canvases, and magnetified refrigerator art.Instructed by the proper Miss Bliss, Alice regularly has issues with taking a nap, speaking out of turn, and remembering what a triangle looks like. Helping her through lifes ups and downs are her eight-year-old brother Petey, Dad (a.k.a. Peter), and Mom (a.k.a. Madeline), as well as Mr. Danders, the preschools pompously pedantic guinea pig.This is the strips first book collection incorporating more than a years worth of strips dating back to the cartoons 2007 debut. Thompson has received critical praise for doing a masterful job of commenting on social issues while entertaining in a freshly amusing and unexpected way.
