Candorville and Pearls Before Swine (4/27/09)


It’s always interesting to see cartoonists draw characters from other comic strips since it offers readers a fresh take on a familiar drawing style. Today’s Candorville features an homage to Rat, the surly lead character in Pearls Before Swine. It’s a nice approximation of both drawing style and attitude, and comes across as a friendly shout-out to another fine comic strip.


Of course, there are also examples of cartoonists coordinating their crossover strips so that they appear on the same day. That may be the case here, given that today’s Pearls Before Swine blatantly poaches a Candorville storyline from December 2008, when bailout strips still seemed fresh.
