Annotated Pearls

Pearls Before Swine Treasuries: Hilarious, irreverent, funny. The best thing about these treasuries, though, is the author's annotations. See what inspired each strip, wacky stories of reader feedback, and what Stephan Pastis thinks of his own work looking back. Includes 'never before printed' strips, sort of like deleted scenes, with the reasons why. It's a great insight into a comic artist's mind.
