I cannot tell a lie, I don't read newspapers and don't currently follow any print comic strips. I mean no offense to its creator, but I had never even heard of the comic strip Pearls Before Swine. Having long lost and much missed Calvin & Hobbes mastermind Bill Watterson collaborate with him on a trio of daily comic strips certainly does garner my attention and admiration though. You can read all three strips, featuring crocodiles, martian robots and scantily clad women, via the Pearls Before Swine blog. We can only hope that this is a baby step towards new original Bill Watterson comics on the horizon.
