We've seen some good use of Shakespeare in the comic strip Pearls Before Swine before (for which, q.v. and q.v. and q.v. and q.v.).
Well, there's even more! I've gathered a few examples from the books listed above. Enjoy!
from BLTs Taste so Darn Good.
from The Crass Menagerie. Please note, Mr. Pastis, that you will find some good crocodile material in Antony and Cleopatra. And Hamlet also mentions one!
from Pearls Sells Out. The Shakespeare is really in the annotation rather than specifically in the comic itself.
from . . . well, I've lost track of where this one is from, I'm afraid. I'll try to track it down. In the meantime, I'll just agree with Mr. Pastis on this one (though I've pretty much always felt that way about the play).
from Sgt. Piggy's Lonely Hearts Club Comic. It's not exclusively Shakespearean, but he has his share of cuckold jokes. Thanks, Mr. Pastis, for continuing the venerable (?) tradition.
from Pearls Gets Sacrificed. The humor comes in the unexpected cultured quality of Larry the Croc's parents.
