Pearls Before Swine Coup Comics Ran This Week

Stephan Pastis had a five day plot for Pearls Before Swine set to run in January 2021
when a tumult caused by some “tourists” resulted in the syndicate pulling the strips.

An upcoming storyline in “Pearls Before Swine,” the popular comic strip created by Santa Rosa cartoonist Stephan Pastis, has been pulled from 850 newspapers by its distributor because five installments scheduled to run next week depicted a military coup.

Eight months later, with the nation calm and united, it is now safe to run funnies about rebellion.
This week Pearls Before Swine ran those never seen coup comics beginning on Monday August 30.

The sad thing about this is that a lot of folks who weren’t aware that the strips were pulled when they were timely have been wondering why Pastis is targeting Biden.
