The addictive humor, snarky cast, and calculated wit of Pearls Before Swine returns in its most recent collection, Breaking Stephan, cracking wise on the hit crime drama Breaking Bad.The familiar gang of characters cook up hilarity with their banter on current events, bicyclists, and the strip's creator, Stephen Pastis. Some of the action this time around features Rat in his very own movie, driven by the brilliant plot of "Rat kicks Pig," and Croc's pursuit of a job with the one weapon in his skillset: drinking. Pastis's Breaking Stephan is sure to entertain with its perfect chemistry of commentary, satirical logic, and dark wit.
Enjoy a new treasury of New York Times Best-Selling Pearls Before Swine. In this treasury collection of Unsportsmanlike Conduct and Rat's Wars, the eclectic Pearls Before Swine cast play out their respective roles. Rat is the arrogant know-it-all, taking constant advantage of the naive and simple Pig, with wise and pedantic Goat looking on in detached disapproval. The incredibly inept Crocs still hold hopes of eating their Zeeba neighbors. Throw in cameo appearances by Guard Duck and Snuffles the Cat and you get the full tableau of Pearls comedy. Stephan's personal annotations lend insight and more humor to this Pearls Before Swine rendition.
True to Pearls Before Swine tradition, Sometimes You Just Gotta Draw a Cover with Your Left Hand brims with Stephan Pastis's cynical humor, sharp wit, and clever commentary. Always together--and sometimes with their fellow funny-page characters--the regular Pearls clan weighs in on everything from modern technology to current events to human nature.
Picturing daily and Sunday strips that ran between summer 2009 and spring 2010, all the members of the skewed gang are here as Zebra engages in a never-ending war of neighborly hate with the Crocs, who have since sent Larry back to school, where he proves to be the dumbest beer-drinking student ever to enter the fourth grade. As always, Goat offers a voice of reason amid the ongoing chaos that Pastis creates, either from behind the pen or as a character within the strip itself.
In its tenth year of publication, Pearls Before Swine now appears in 600 newspapers worldwide, boasts an ever-growing online readership, and is a two-time winner of the National Cartoonists Society's Best Newspaper Comic Strip award. Pastis's Sometimes You Just Gotta Draw a Cover with Your Left Hand is sure to add to the funny-page phenomenon, for it gives Pearls fans more of what they know and love: satirical logic and hilarious wit.
