Stephen Pastis's comic strip Pearls Before Swine is good, clean fun. His latest collection of comic strips, Suit Your Selfie, gets laughs out of weight gain, friendship, and, of course, cell phones. Pig and Rat have mixed feelings about new technologies like smart phones.
This is billed as a collection for kids, and I know kids will be amused by the funny animals and much of the humor. But a lot of it is really humor for adults, not in the sense that it uses foul language or sex jokes, but that it addresses adult issues like dieting and growing old. So, really, in the best sense, the comics are multi-generationally funny.
I thoroughly enjoyed this collection full of laugh-out-loud moments. Pastis makes several cameo appearances, allowing himself to be the butt of many a joke. Pick up the book, check them out in the paper (if you still read a newspaper), or read them online at: http://www.gocomics.com/pearlsbeforeswine.
