    I love the Pearls Before Swine treasuries It's a funny strip all by itself but to have Pastis' running commentary on the strips is pure gold It's like having a director's commentary on a DVD His art is crude but serviceable Where this stuff really shines is in the writing Always happy to read his stuff

    This is a great collection of Pearls Before Swine cartoons The commentary that goes with them makes them even hilarious A definite must for cartoon fans

    uick impressions I found the humor somewhat inconsistent When it is good it really can be good When it is bad it can be pretty flat Also I can do without the author's commentary he includes in most of the strips; it often just boils down to overexplaining a joke or punchline If you need to explain the joke it was not that good for starters I still liked most of it I'd say borrow it if you want to read it full review on my blog later

    I'd read the books collected in this treasury 50000 Pearl Fans Can't Be Wrong and When Pigs Fly but I didn't buy them and the treasury was 50% off from BN I couldn't not get it I almost prefer the treasuries over the individual collections because of Pastis's commentary One can see very clearly where Rat got his distinctive voice In addition Pastis will occasionally discuss his inspiration for various strips as well as some of his interactions with other cartoonists I read this after Larry in Wonderland and it only highlighted how awful that collection was In Pearls Blows Up Pastis juggles several storylines crams them together and makes it seem perfectly logical in a ludicrous kind of way I have a soft spot for the reoccurring Lion characters and I always enjoy Guard Duck I liked the way Pastis handled Guard Duck's storyline with Maura and how he was able to flirt with continuity while still making the strip accessible to a lackadaisical reader However my favorite strip in the book has to be the one from January 15th 2009 because if I stay in libraries that's gonna be me in thirty years

    This is one of my favorite comic strips to read in the morning First the artist doesn't take himself too seriously and when he's short on ideas he often draws himself in the comic generally looking like a bum and has his characters poke fun at him for not being great Secondly its almost always funny From Rat doing and saying the things you really want to in real life but not being able to; to Pig's sweetness balancing it out Oh and of course the crocodilesalways trying to catch Zebra in some elaborate scheme ok elaborate is probably too big of a word for the crocs but some type of scheme Thirdly he has fun with some of the other comics normally Family Circus and it's always fun to see their interactions with Pastis's worldThe biggest bonus of buying the treasury is to read Pastis's commentary and see what he's thinking He openly admits when he thinks a strip is bad and often provides some great insight into what he was thinking in the storyline Pearls before swine is always a fun read and this latest treasury provides entertainment to last hours upon hours

    This was the book I just kept reading through the whole April holidays The humour is witty with the most smartypants comments coming from Rat Most of the characters have vivid and hilarious personalities However I found a couple of characters that didn't seem to have any personalities at all the most important character without a personality being Goat This didn't drag down the book down when we're talking about ratings though Under most comics are commentary by Stephen Pastis that adds to why I really like this book so much If you have a small but powerful interest in comics this is a must have or at least a rent from the libraryI have one uestion though WHO SAID THIS WAS ANOTHER EDITION OF PEARLS SELLS OUT? My homework is ruined forever

    Pearls Before Swine and Get Fuzzy are the only comic strips I try to read every day so although I have read these in daily strip form it's great to reread them in a collection too Pig Rat Goat and the Crocs are always funny The commentary by Stephan Pastis makes the collection even better He comments on about 23rds of the strips in the collection and his remarks are funny and insightful
