According to Guinness World Records, the book title with the longest title goes to an Indian author who wrote a book on the idiosyncracies of the English language. The book title was 5,633 characters. Coming in second place has to be Stephan’s new book Because Sometimes You Just Gotta Draw a Cover with Your Left Hand: A Pearls Before Swine Collection.
Long, illegible title aside, this 12th book is quite good though I’m surprised it’s only his 12th book – he comes out with a new book like every six weeks – often with titles you can read and without becoming winded. Either way I can never get enough strips featuring zebra and the crocodiles. Stephan’s probably the only cartoonist who’s turned himself into a major character in his own strip which begs the question… does his ego know no bounds?. At least he’s not shirtless in any of these strips unlike other productions he’s done.
The book comes out April 10. Amazon has it on pre-order (43% off) with a price guarantee. If you buy it, I can assure you the comics inside are much more legible and considerably more funny than the cover.
