One of the funniest comics ever drawn Oct. 13 2008
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
The 13th Sherman's Lagoon collection by Jim Toomey, SHARKS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN is an outstanding winner, joining others in the syndicated strip's growing library and providing especially winning and valuable to any area devoid of regular Sherman comics. A year in the life of a great white shark and his lagoon friends receives black and white and a few color embellishments in one of the funniest comics ever drawn: a top pick for any collection serious about representing syndicated comics and top-notch productions.

Best Comic Strip Being Published Today March 17 2009
By C. Kile - Published on
Format: Paperback
Jim Toomey is still a genius. He is the last great comic strip artist that we have today. Truly an original concept of seeing a shark and his underwater friends get into the zany situations with the kind of sarcastic, snappy humor that we don't get to see anymore. It's always a blast to see Hawthorn's latest business scheme or Sherman's next crazy adventure. This book is a must read to anyone looking for a good laugh.
Sharks having fun July 3 2011

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is great, easy to digest cartoon humor, kinda like other grand stuff like Mother Gooose & Grimmy. Of course, you don't need to have an analysis of the current economic, political and evironmental issues in your daily life. This stuff provides you the option of sitting back and ignoring all the other clatter as you chuckle in fits.

Book was new and transaction was handled quickly with no mishaps. My daughter 13, enjoyed and laughed aloud at comics. She bookmarked many to share with her dad and me.

always funny, and number 13 in the collections is no exception. Toomey does a great job in creating situations that even us land-locked denizens can relate to,
