Description
As its loyal fans will gladly tell you, Pickles has been a zinger-filled, laugh-out-loud gem since it debuted in 1990. Over the last decade, it's steadily climbed in popularity, and today appears in over 400 papers worldwide. Now Andrews McMeel Publishing is releasing its first-ever collection of the strip that Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel readers voted as their overwhelming favorite comic, spanning all sexes and age groups.Still Pickled After All These Years collects recent strips from the sweet intergenerational comic that alternates point of view between an older married couple, a 30-something married couple, and a their son. The strip centers on Earl and Opal Pickles, who have been married over 50 years but inject plenty of spunk and insight into everything they do. Whether they're taking a wry but sympathetic glance at their divorced daughter Sylvia, laughing at their faithful but feckless canine, Roscoe, marveling at their dictatorial feline, Muffin, or just commenting on the little things in life, Earl and Opal's good-natured wit and dry humor is brilliantly on target.Pickles is about growing old and keeping your sense of humor but never forgetting what it's like to be a child. The strip's inaugural AMP collection, Still Pickled After All These Years, encapsulates the importance of staying close to those who bring you the most joy and reminds everyone from teens to seniors about the incalculable value of the unconditional love of pets, family, and friends.
