And When She Opened the Closet, All the Clothes Were Polyester

A FoxTrot Collection

Amend takes the fears, hopes, dreams, and touching moments of family life and imbues them with unparalleled humanity.” –The Onion

Bill Amend’s FoxTrot, syndicated by Universal Press Syndicate, humorously depicts suburban living through the cavortings of the Fox family. Kids Peter, Paige, and Jason, along with parents Roger and Andy, suffer through the same fads, fixations, and familial land mines that readers know so well.

As the 25th FoxTrot comic collection, And When She Opened the Closet, All the Clothes Were Polyester! features strips published from February 2006 through December 2006-including Amend’s very last daily strip. Jason continues to channel his unique brand of geekiness-primarily at Paige’s expense-while Peter continues to lord over them both. Parents Roger and Andy try to keep up with their children’s antics, usually to no avail.
