''[[http://www.pbfcomics.com/ The Perry Bible Fellowship]]'' is a newspaper comic strip[=/=]webcomic by Nicholas Gurewitch. It's notable for its [[BlackComedy black, surrealist humour]]. It specializes in juxtaposing [[SugarBowl whimsical settings]] with [[BlackComedy morbid subject matter]]. It's kind of like the ''FarSide'', except with cutesier art and more murder.

Most of the tropes it encounters, it subverts. {{Art Shift}}s are frequent; it goes for either a very intricate or very simplistic art style, depending on the joke. Has a habit of CrossingTheLineTwice, and sometimes three or four times. At some point, it will probably ruin your childhood. Maybe your adulthood, too.

''Perry Bible Fellowship: The Trial of Colonel Sweeto and Other Stories'', a reprint of the original webcomic and additional artwork, won the 2008 Eisner Comic Book Industry Award for Best Humor Publication. The comic is currently on semi-hiatus, and updates every once in a blue moon.

Compare ''SaturdayMorningBreakfastCereal''.
