Fans of the surreal, the bizarre and sardonic anthropomorphic cows are in a fervour after The Far Side cartoonist Gary Larson’s website was updated this weekend with promises of “a new online era”, 24 years after the reclusive creator retired at the age of 44.
This was published at the start of last week, so I’m a bit late here, but no matter. The Far Side is coming back and, having been a huge fan of Gary Larson’s offbeat view of the world back in the day, I am really looking forward to seeing what comes next.
It’s not clear whether this will be new content or re-issues of existing cartoons. Obviously new cartoons would be much preferred but, as long as the new site has an RSS feed, I will be more than happy to start enjoying a digital dose of absurdist surrealism.
