    1 thought on “Lions and Tigers and Crocs, Oh My!: A Pearls Before Swine Treasury

    1. Sometimes, the commentary of Stephan Pastis is funnier than his actual comics. That's not to downplay his strip, but he's self-deprecating and observant. The mania of Pearls Before Swine is written from being very appreciative of the cartoonist's life (instead of his previous decade-long gig as an insurance lawyer) and his ability to answer his own question of "Can you believe I get paid to do this?"He's not culturally angelic, like Charles Schultz and Bill Watterson, but he represents more of a [...]

    2. Newspaper comics is an underrated medium. I think we have a tendency to write off things that are mass-marketed and/or intended for general audiences. For example, Disney makes charming and, at times, insightful films. The majority of my friends subscribe to the Disney cult, having grown up during the "Disney Renaissance" of the 1990s. And yet for every bit of praise, I've encountered an equal amount of criticism and derision, abounding accusation of "sameness" and "lameness". It's a core facet [...]

    3. Old Pearls strips are amazing. These strips are dark, cynical, and even shameless, but incredibly funny. Some of these are even somewhat thought-provoking. While his artwork isn't fabulously spectacular (he often criticizes his own drawing ability in the commentary), his humor is top-notch. For some reason, the new Pearls strips just aren't as funny anymore. Fans of Pastis's current work will be astounded by the hilarity of the strips in this treasury.Visit my site: disappointmentsea/ for more r [...]

    4. I got this book for free. I saw a guy at my favorite coffee shop (The Roasterie Cafe in Kansas City, MO) reading this book one evening, and had to comment that I too love Pearls. Little did I know that he worked for the publisher Andrews McMeel (also located in Kansas City, MO), so he gave me the book to say thanks for loving Pearls. Kansas Citians are so friendly. Oh, and this book is funny too.

    5. When I was working in any of the many bookstores where I was employed and I did not want (or have the time) to read my current book, I would grab one of these collections to read on my too short break. I slowly but surely worked my way through several series. These are great time killers and will usually improve your mood no matter how hectic the day. Laughter can be the best solution to dealing with the public.

    6. If you don't know what Pearls before Swine is, then buy this book!This book is for people with the same sardonic, devilish humor as those who enjoy Addams Family (Chas Addams), The Far Side or Sherman's Lagoon.It just has me rolling.

    7. Funny, but not enough of the Crocs to make this a four star book. Pastis humor is interesting and to some it's not friendly, but it does speak of the reality of human nature. A funny book, but not the best in the collection.

    8. I enjoyed this much more than I expected. I used to be so annoyed at the way the crocodiles talk that I would skip reading this cartoon. But I am enjoying the sly commentary on society and even politics that is sometimes masked by the use of animals as the characters.

    9. Further development of a great comic strip. I just love this guy. Calvin and Hobbes, Peanuts, and Pearls (well I'd throw in Mutts also).Great stuff.

    10. another great pearls treasuryi love the crocs that want to eat the zebra.but i gotta sayrat is just a little too much like me

    11. Just as good as the first treasury, and with the introduction of the Zeba Zeba Eata crocodiles, things should start zooming.

    12. This is my favourite strip currently on the comics page. Pastis comes across as such a sweet family man in the commentary. If not for doing this strip, I think he'd be the next unibomber.

    13. A good treasury, containing mostly comics that are not in another Pearls treasury, which is not always true with this strip.
