The addictive humor, snarky cast, and calculated wit of Pearls Before Swine returns in its most recent collection, Breaking Stephan, cracking wise on the hit crime drama Breaking Bad.
The familiar gang of characters cook up hilarity with their banter on current events, bicyclists, and the strip's creator, Stephen Pastis. Some of the action this time around features Rat in his very own movie, driven by the brilliant plot of "Rat kicks Pig," and Croc's pursuit of a job with the one weapon in his skillset: drinking.
Pastis's Breaking Stephan is sure to entertain with its perfect chemistry of commentary, satirical logic, and dark wit.
Stephan Pastis is an attorney turned cartoonist. A graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, and the UCLA School of Law, he worked as a lawyer before trying his hand at cartooning. Pastis lives in the Bay Area with his wife and two children.
"It's just a very, very funny collection of daily and colorized Sunday strips built around the central conceit that a comic strip should make you laugh, and laugh often. Fifteen books in and there’s still gas in the tank mission accomplished." (Trent McGee, Popzara.com)
