Foxtrot, by Bill Amend
Bill Amend's FoxTrot is one of those comic strips whose greatness may have seemed a little too unassuming early on. After all, the strip simply described the ups and downs of a suburban family, nothing more, nothing less. But yet, as this first collection of strips prove, FoxTrot was not just another fun little strip about a stereotype family- the Fox clan here was anything but stereotypes, actually, as Amend wisely decided to give each family member a distinct identity rather than just throw them in situations with humor potential, like many other strips tend to do.
Your Momma Thinks Square Roots Are Vegetables, by Bill Amend
One strip in FoxTrot's newest collection, Your Momma Thinks Square Roots Are Vegetables, illustrates the family dynamics especially well: When Peter makes a racy call to girlfriend Denise on his cell phone, he's shocked to find out he's actually dialed his mother.
