The one who created “The Far Side” is Gary Larson. He was a cartoonist who was able to show a different side through the cartoons that he created. The cartoons had a humor that was considered to be surrealistic. The cartoon used to be called “Nature’s Way” but when it was bought by the San Francisco Chronicle, the cartoon was changed. It was actually a surprise for Larson that it was actually accepted.
Larson said that he found it funny that there were a lot of people who misunderstood the actual meaning of the cartoons that he created. He retired in 1997 but he drew a cover for The New Yorker magazine in 2003.
