More About The Sopratos

Made in America, Pearls Before Swine stars Rat, the boss of this outfit-arrogant, self-centered, and quick-tempered. Pig is the conscience. Zebra is a survivor (with Crocodile next-door-neighbors), and Goat is the brains. Duck is Pig's loyal but violent and unstable guard duck. The dark, twisted adventures of this bunch of goodfellas have made Pearls the fastest-growing comic strip of the decade.

Join the family and get in on the action. It's whacked.

    Way too funny!

    I had a gift card with just a little money left, so I thought I would purchase some amusing reading for the bathroom (AKA "the reading room"). I was a little concerned because although I love Stephan Pastis's work, I never watched the TV show "The Sopranos", and if this was a spoof of that, then I might not get it.

    No worries. Maybe there was a subtext I didn't catch, but one way or the other, these strips are FUNNY! Sometimes a cartoonist's earliest work is the freshest and funniest. In any case, for what you spend here, if you like Pastis's brand of gallows humor, and if you did not buy the larger treasury (I don't remember which one it is...check first) that includes this and another of the smaller books, then this is your quick stop to the comic relief you need at the end of a rough day.
