Jasotron: 2012 (Foxtrot Collection) (Paperback)
Email or call for price.
"FoxTrot" distills popular culture through the lens of everyday family life offering a deft and humorous critique on society's latest comings and goings.
Bill Amend's "FoxTrot" skillfully depicts suburban living through the cavortings of the Fox family. Peter, Paige, and Jason, along with parents Roger and Andy, comment on the latest Hollywood fads, gaming fixations, and familial fascinations. As the 27th "FoxTrot" comic collection, "Jasontron: 2012" features all full-color Sunday strips published from September 2009 to Spring 2012.
Jason continues to craft exploits at Paige's expense, while Peter suits up for the next big game. Parents Roger and Andy keep up with their children's antics, as Roger vigilantly monitors his hairline and his burrito intake, along with Andy's attempts to create Peeps from tofu and saffron. With appearances in the "New York Times" crossword puzzle and on television's "Jeopardy " and "The Sopranos," "FoxTrot" frequently finds itself an integral part of the popular culture that it so often critiques.
