    So glad I bought this, after some years without "Sylvia"! I love this strip, which contains an amazing mix of sharp witty visual and verbal humor, so perfectly in tune with my own views on life! I am glad I purchased this new, so the hardworking author Nicole Hollander gets her shekel: thank you for creating Sylvia! This strip gives sarcasm its proper due, and cleverly inserts miniature side threads to be enjoyed. I love the one which ends with an off-screen admirer commenting "I love how your e So glad I bought this, after some years without "Sylvia"! I love this strip, which contains an amazing mix of sharp witty visual and verbal humor, so perfectly in tune with my own views on life! I am glad I purchased this new, so the hardworking author Nicole Hollander gets her shekel: thank you for creating Sylvia! This strip gives sarcasm its proper due, and cleverly inserts miniature side threads to be enjoyed. I love the one which ends with an off-screen admirer commenting "I love how your eyes sparkle like stars when you get sarcastic" (possibly slightly misquoted, but get the send-up of that tired & fatuous line about anger...

    Too much Sylvia is never enough. But, still, she may be an acquired taste unless you are a woman of "a certain age." If you are a liberal, liberating, libatious (may be a word I just made up meaning likes to drink a little, but mainly created for the alliteration) then Sylvia is your galpal.

    I did not like this one much. I have a lovely copy of Sylvia on Sundays which I got at a church sale awhile ago, and I really enjoyed the humor in it. This one just seemed to have only political cartoons, which I guess some people like. But, my enjoyment was probably diminished by the fact that all the politics mentioned happened before I was born, and I had to ask my mom about half of the politicians to get the jokes. Ope. And, there was not even one cat cartoon! There was a nice alien in about I did not like this one much.

And, there was not even one cat cartoon! There was a nice alien in about two of the strips but eh. It was cool to kind of read about the beginnings of Sylvia and about Nicole Hollander and her influences, but that was only a little bit in the beginning.

    I've always liked Sylvia. This was an entertaining way to get to know a little more about her sharp creator, Nicole Hollander.

    Let me clear: I love both Sylvia and Nicole Hollander with an unholy passion and have done so for decades. The commentary, the sarcasm, the cats - what's not to love? If you haven't yet discovered Hollander's work, this is a fine introduction. If you have, this is an excellent addition.
