Breaking Stephan: A Pearls Before Swine Collection By Stephan Pastis Cover Image
This title is currently unavailable for order.


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.
