These are not your typical cuddly cartoon characters. Sharks eat other fish--and people--with regularity. (The fish refer to people as "hairless beach apes.") But they carry on like people most of the time: ordering from catalogs (Sharker Image), watching TV, taking trips to exotic (for them) places. The guy who writes this has a really funny turn of mind, and each character has a well-developed personality. Take a look at the current strips at [...] if you want.

Once in a blue moon there comes a cartoonist and character that just tickles every part of your senses. This does not happen very often in this genre as the talent to illustrate, deliver the punch line, maintain a sense of civility and not insult the reader's intelligence has to be done all at the same time. Calvin and Hobbes was one. Sherman's gang is another. Enjoy this before this gets shelved forever into the museum of pure intelligent humor. Did I say intelligent?

Do not forget to have a go at the other 8 volumes... the next one due the first of September (the better way to go back to work...).
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

A kind of surreal atmosphere/personages created by without doubt a very imaginative mind. I really enjoyed the VARIETY of themes and approach of the different characters wich are'nt linear or flat at all.
Actually this book is a collection wich contains strips of other books and some wich are'nt included on the previous one's. If you enjoy this one go for the rest as I did (Quite the Sherman's approach to life mind...).
INNOVATIVE/BRILLIANT.

Excellent book Feb. 16 2014

Covers many great years of shark-ness. The strips jump around a bit to cover all the years, but still very readable.

The Laughs Don't Stop Dec 31 2013
By Louis W. Grams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Jim Toomey's collection of "Greatest Hits and Near Misses" is a sure way to break up the dismal days of winter cold and shorter periods of daylight. The Lagoon is full of all of the people you love and hate and the full range of characters in between - all in the form of creatures of the sea that keep the truth about ourselves from becoming too miserably close to home to be able to laugh at. Whenever I'm not feeling well, I take a dose of Jim Toomey and "Sherman's Lagoon" since laughter is definitely the best medicine around. This collection is a concentrated dose of medicine that may cause serious side aches from all of the laughing, but in the end you will feel much better for having taken it in with Sherman size gulps of the contents of each page.
