Move over! Pearls Before Swine
is back and badder than ever in the new treasury collection Pearls Hogs the Road
gang returns with characteristically misanthropic humor (but with more leather): no self-aggrandizing is too flagrant for Rat, no subject is too erudite for Goat, and no sensory input is too basic for Pig.
All topics are fair game for Stephan Pastis and his brass-knuckle punch lines. Comic strip censors, apathetic baristas, and IRS employees are all strongly advised to laugh or get out of the way.Pearls Hogs the Road
also features three comic strips illustrated by the legendary Bill Watterson of Calvin and Hobbes
, who ended a 19-year hiatus from the comics page to collaborate with Pastis.
