In December 2019, Gary Larson of The Far Side announced he was coming out of retirement, and now, the satirical cartoonist has started publishing new single-frame digital works.

In a message to introduce what he is calling “New Stuff,” Larson says that his love for drawing was reignited by a digital tablet, “I was stunned at all the tools the thing offered, all the creative potential it contained. I simply had no idea how far these things had evolved.” He attributes his foray into digital art to his “once-loyal but now reliably traitorous pen.”

Reflecting on his retirement, Larson recalls the stress of constantly drawing to meet deadlines, “The day after I retired from syndication, it felt good not to draw on a deadline.” And to the delight of long-standing The Far Side fans, Larson announces the start of a new generation of comics, “So here goes. I’ve got my coffee, I’ve got this cool gizmo, and I’ve got no deadlines. And — to borrow from Sherlock Holmes — the game is afoot.”

Check out Larson’s latest comics via The Far Side‘s official website.
