‘Pearls’ Comic Gets ‘Funky’ With Death Spoof

By: E&P Staff

“Pearls Before Swine,” which has been referencing other comics this week, took on “Funky Winkerbean” today.

The Rat character and a cartoon version of “Pearls” creator Stephan Pastis have seemingly died. While on the clouds, they meet a Phantom-of-the-Opera-looking guy reminiscent of the guy who “escorted” the Lisa character to her death (from cancer) last year in “Funky Winkerbean.”

That “Funky” story line made the King Features-syndicated Tom Batiuk a Pulitzer Prize finalist this April.

Today’s “Pearls” comic — syndicated by United Media — can be seen here.
