Kochalka's diary strip has always been entertaining, but this might be the most action-packed volume of all. His neighbor's car gets firebombed, his little son Eli learns how to invent his own swears (like "pump duck"), and James gets a gun pointed at his face. Most dramatic of all, this volume introduces a new character - a new little baby Kochalka! This collection prints all the diary strips from 2006-2007 in gorgeous full-color, including numerous strips that never appeared online.
