Rat’s War

Contained in a softbound book with a hilarious take-off of Star Wars cover, Rat’s War by cartoonist Stephen Pastis and published by Andrews McMeel Publishing collects the latest daily and Sunday comic strips of Pearls Before Swine.
Dedicated to the late Bill Keane of Family Circle fame, Rat’s War dares to tread on dangerous ground.  Pastis has no qualms about making fun of fellow cartoonist’s comic strips (my favorite sequence of strips), marriage, death, comic strip editors, Mr. Rogers, kid’s books, illegitimate children, toilet paper and other domestic and social issues.

Pun-filled and poignant, Rat’s War is a fun-filled, frame-by-frame, feel good funfest comic strip fans will love.
