SURVIVAL OF THE FILTHIEST is a collection of “Get Fuzzy” strips that originally ran in newspapers from August 10, 2008-July 5, 2009. I seem to enjoy “Get Fuzzy” best when it’s involved in a long story-arc. The two story arcs in this collection that stick out to me most are when Bucky secedes from the United States and declares his closet to be the state of Buckyvania (that sets into motion an entire series of strips including a planned U.S. government takeover) and when Satchel hires some ghosthunters to bust some ghosts in the apartment. In addition to the usual hijinks, there are several strips dealing with the 2008 U.S. Presidential election and several soccer jokes. Overall, SURVIVAL OF THE FITHIEST is a solid collection of “Get Fuzzy” strips.
