Follows the escapades of self-centered Rat and kindly (but dumb) Pig and their pals---includes commentary from the author.
The Fab Four of the funny pages come together again-this time in their first book treasury.
Rat, Pig, Zebra, and Goat, the central characters of "Pearls Before Swine," are back in "Sgt. Piggy's Lonely Hearts Club Comic," the first "Pearls Before Swine "treasury-supersized for your enjoyment.
But this is no ordinary cartoon treasury. Like the influential Beatles album that inspired the book's title, "Sgt. Piggy "is full of surprises. In addition to collecting all of the "Pearls" cartoons that appeared in "BLTs Taste So Darn Good" and "This Little Piggy Stayed Home," cartoonist Stephan Pastis takes readers on a VIP backstage tour of one of the most successful comic strips in newspapers today.
In "Sgt. Piggy," Pastis explains the genesis of "Pearls" (hint: it didn't begin at an artist's easel), why he was initially reluctant to show it to newspaper syndicates (and the surprising reason he changed his mind), the unexpected responses from readers to his work, and which Pearls strips worked and which ones didn't (and how he would have corrected the ones that didn't). The result is a rare and revealing glimpse into the world of Rat, Pig, Goat and Zebra. Full of humor and insight, sardonic asides and unexpected truths, "Sgt. Piggy's Lonely Hearts Club Comic" is a book that comics fans everywhere can enjoy anytime-even when they're 64
