The Crass Menagerie is the third Pearls treasury.
In the book..
In the first few pages, Stephan talks about his life and a so-called "Failed Assassination" attempt. Towards the end, just like the previous treasury, the back includes a section of nixed Pearls strips called, "The Not Ready for Prime Time Strips." It included 20 comics and an unfinished Rat adventure where he was making a story up, but he never finished it.
- The title is a parody of "The Glass Menagerie"
- This is the first Pearls treasury to have no black subtitle on the bottom.
