This week's Pearl Before Swine comic strip involves a meta-plotline in which a second grader named Libby takes over art duties from strip writer/artist Stephan Pastis. It's rumored that an unnamed guest artist is providing Libby's artwork, although it's possible that Pastis is just changing his art style for the "guest art" panels.
Here are the strips in question. The middle panels and the gagline in the second strip are the biggest clues to the guest artist's identity:
Earlier strips can be found at GoComics, Universal Uclick syndicate's website. Universal also holds the rights to several other popular comic strips, including Calvin and Hobbes, Peanuts, and Garfield.
Pastis promised that tomorrow's strip will lead to a "mind blowing surprise", which could be the reveal of the identity of the "guest artist". I don't want to spoil much more than that, but I encourage folks to read the strip tomorrow to see what it is.
