Rather than individually discuss the dozen or so collections of Dilbert comics that I have, I though it best to simply give an overall critique. The comic is simply, yet lovingly, rendered and portrays the misadventures of an engineer and his maniacal dog. The comic strip is at its best when it deals with either Dilbert struggling against the ineptitude of corporate society or with the world domination plans of Dogbert. Not to worry, that's the vast majority of comics. The television show, however, was doomed from inception because the jokes that work so well in three panel gags simply cannot last over a thirty-minute show.
