    One thought on “The Best of MUTTS”

    1. Mutts is likely the only worthwhile strip running in daily newspaper comics sections these days, so a tenth-anniversary collection like this is worthy of some attention. Patrick McDonnell has successfully found a happy middle ground between overt cuteness and something much deeper, often tending towards the sort of zen repose that made predecessors such as Herriman's Krazy Kat so worthwhile. The strongest part of Mutts has always been the inventive Sunday pages, which often begin with splash pan [...]

    2. I've always enjoyed the Mutts comic strip in the newspaper, and then I saw something on PBS that showed Patrick McDonnell going to pet shelters to meet the animals and learn their stories for his Shelter Stories feature. I thought that was lovely, so I thought I'd support him and buy one of his books. This "Best of" is a retrospective of the first 10 years of the strip. Each year begins with an intro written by McDonnell about what developed in the strip. Then it shows both daily and Sunday comi [...]

    3. Patrick McDonnell selects the comics he considers his best from the first 10 years of the comic strip Mutts, 1994-2004. In the intro to each year's chapter, he gives some of the themes and characters he introduces that year: the little pink sock, shelter stories, the clam and mussel, the kitten who wants to save the tigers, etc.Probably the best comic strip currently running in newspapers - alas, not in ours. Thank goodness it's available online or via email.Highly recommended.

    4. Just love me some "Mutts" to lift my spirits! Not only do cats and dogs get along; Patrick touches bases/explains some of where his inspiration comes from, as well as what he is passionate about. (ex: human animal relationships, art, putting an awareness out there regarding animal shelters-pulling at heartstrings, endangered species) As well as making me giggle.

    5. Bits of it are cute. Some other bits are not. There's a lot of cat napping, dog being man's best friend as usual, a lot of forgettable characters except the main 2 but I must say some bits are pretty clever and heart warming. I just cannot recall after I have closed the book. This is a fantasy book and in reality no dogs can get along with cats.

    6. Wish this was a little more comprehensive. Patrick McDonnell's insights weren't very useful. I think he's too close to the strip to be able to see what's so great about it.

    7. I just couldn't get into this as much as I thought I would. Too saccharine for me and the lisp is irritating. However, I appreciate that a strip like this exists.

    8. I love MUTTS! And I mean this in only the non-creepiest of ways, but I want to live in Patrick McDonnell's brain :)

    9. Its a fun, happy and thoughtful read in a time when I need something easy and cheerful. I love that in a lot of ways, its much more than a comic strip.

    10. BIG SHINY 5 STARS! I love this book! Get it the next time you guys stumble upon it in BBW! I mean it! Geddddit!!!!

    11. As a pet person, I love mutts. The cartoons aren't always laugh-out-loud funny, but they are always heart-warming.

    12. Who does not love Mutts? Mooch and Earl provide their usual shenanigans in the most adorable way. Very nice book, a keeper.
