    1. A great selection of strips from the past 33 years(as of 1984)of Beetle Bailey. Includes strips from Beetle's college life.

    2. Iz nekog razloga, ovo je omiljeni strip mog sina. Sviđa mu se više od Taličnog Toma, Iznoguda i Asteriksa, što mi je malo teško da prihvatim, ali očito Bili ima neki tajni recept za glasno dečačko smejanje i prepričavanje fazona.

    3. A NICE ASSORTMENT I read this book aloud with my teen sons. I expected that "the best" meant "the funniest", but it wasn't any funnier than Beetle in other formats that we've read. Beetle is, after all, a consistently high-quality comic. Rather, they chose an assortment of comics focusing on various characters and themes and how they changed over time. It was also interesting to read about the cartoonist's experiences and artistic choices.

    4. Instantly recognizable style. Gags are ok, not anything special. I didn't really care for the characters. Most interesting thing was seeing some of the original college strips before it became an army comic.
