The Far Side is a single-panel comic created by Gary Larson and syndicated by Universal Press Syndicate , which ran from January 1, 1980, to January 1, 1995 (when Larson retired as a cartoonist). Its surrealistic humor is often based on uncomfortable social situations, improbable events, an anthropomorphic view of the world, logical fallacies, impending bizarre disasters, (often twisted) references to proverbs , or the search for meaning in life. Larson's frequent use of animals and nature in the comic is popularly attributed to his background in biology . Reruns are still printed in many newspapers.

The Far Side was ultimately carried by more than 1,900 daily newspapers, translated into 17 languages, and collected into calendars, greeting cards, and 23 compilation books. [1]

Larson was recognized for his work on the strip with the National Cartoonist Society Newspaper Panel Cartoon Award for 1985 and 1988, [2] and with their Reuben Award for 1990 and 1994. [3]
