by Frank Baginski and Reynolds Dodson

The laughs are slightly bitter—estrangement and alimony aren't all that amusing—but the newspaper comic strip collected here hits some bruised funny bones and has built a faithful year-and-a-half relationship with its followers. Writer Dodson is divorced; artist Baginski has never married. This paperback is a prelude to a TV adaptation planned for the fall. (Hawthorn Books, $4.95)
