A special 20th anniversary hardcover Baby Blues retrospective, this is the colossal collection that Baby Blues’s 55 million-plus fans have been clamoring for. BBXX is a hefty, hardcover treasury highlighting 20 years of Baby Blues, one of the most popular comic strips in history. A comprehensive and commemorative edition of all things Baby Blues, creators Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott share personal reflections and never-before-published essays, drawings, and photographs, along with almost 800 of the best Baby Blues strips from the last two decades. Named Best Comic Strip of the Year in 1995, Baby Blues follows young parents Darryl and Wanda MacPherson as they raise children Zoe, Hammie, and Baby Wren. From temper tantrums to toilet training, everyday experiences that all parents agonize over and laugh about serve as fertile comedic ground as BBXX takes readers on a relevant and timeless journey through twenty years of Baby Blues. What results is a truthfully fulfilling romp through the daily aspects of family life as well as a carefully nuanced tug at the heartstrings.
Now in an annual, treasury-sized book, Baby Blues brings you another year of life with the MacPhersons. Often-befuddled Darryl and always-overworked Wanda manage to parent precocious Zoe, ornery Hammie, and Baby Wren while still keeping their senses of humor and sometimes even sweetness. In this collection, Zoe decides it's time for her to take karate lessons, Wanda declares she needs some time for herself and joins a book (wine?) club, and Hammie discovers the joys of a zip line. Mostly calm Wanda finally reaches her breaking point of asking the kids to clean up, unleashing a new force of nature to the comic strip: the Tsumommy!

Baby Blues makes life with children seem funny, even when they smear peanut butter on the walls and give the baby a makeover with Mom's cosmetics. Says writer Jerry Scott, "As long as kids keep having runny noses and wiping them on the drapes, we're in business." Our Server is Down: Baby Blues Scrapbook #20 captures the perils and pratfalls of raising young children in suburbia. Daryl and Wanda MacPherson are a couple in their mid-thirties struggling to juggle work and three kids with hectic schedules-and maintain their sanity.
