""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
This collection of Pearls Before Swine makes a happy return to home and hearth as only these scamps can. An iconic portrait that captures the essence of modern life, Pearls Before Swine is a heartwarming American original.
A gifted storyteller with a sick sense of humor, Stephan Pastis is rapidly becoming a master of the cartoon art form. His pearls of wisdom are sly and subversive, smart and shocking. And incredibly funny.
It's a jungle out there. The only way to survive is with friends, a thick skin, and, a good dose of cynicism.
* A sense of humor, along with a little animal instinct, is just what The Saturday Evening Pearls offers.
* Pearls Before Swine was named Best Comic Strip in 2004, and again in 2007 by the National Cartoonists Society.
