"There's an artful, edgy rebellion being waged in the funny pages, and one of its brightest revolutionaries is Stephan Pastis." --Fort Worth Star-Telegram
"The cartoon Pearls Before Swine is written by a psychopath." --reader complaint, Wichita Eagle
Smart, sharp, and sometimes painfully honest, Pearls Before Swine mocks the flaws and shortcomings of human nature with cynical humor. Stephan Pastis’s key to humor: “When in doubt, kill cute things.”
Cartoonist Stephan Pastis's 50,000,000 Pearls Fans Can't Be Wrong is one collection that's destined for the top of the charts. It's pure gold, packed with smart, sharp, and painfully honest comic strips that will rock readers with their clever insights into the human soul.
Pearls Before Swine is Pastis's hilarious comic strip tale of two friends: arrogant, egotistical, "hound dog" Rat, and slow-witted, painfully naive, "teddy bear" Pig. Along with Zebra, the "jailhouse rock" activist; Goat, the "treat me nice" reluctant brain; and the "heartbreak hotel" carnivorous Crocs, Pearls delightfully mocks the flaws and shortcomings of human nature. Ladies and gentlemen, the King has left the building.
So far this century, there have arguably been three breakout hits on the comics page-The Boondocks, Get Fuzzy, and Pearls Before Swine." -San Francisco Chronicle
