Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What goes on in the head of Dan Piraro — stand-up comedian, fine artist, animal rights activist, and creator of the award-winning syndicated comic strip Bizarro? This wildly inventive compendium of cartoons, never-before-seen sketches, photographs, and paintings — along with Piraro's own hilarious and thought-provoking insights into his life and the world at large-takes readers inside the mind of the mad genius with a nationwide following. Much more than just a collection of cartoons, this is the first comprehensive book incorporating all of Piraro's work in a variety of media, interwoven with autobiographical passages that shed light on the evolution of the artist's left-leaning worldview. It's a must-have for Bizarro fans and a terrific introduction for the uninitiated.

Synopsis:

In this book, Piraro discusses his own life, from his Bible-Belt beginnings to his happy landing in New York City, from life with a well-paying day job and a big house in the suburbs to his much more fulfilling (if not as lucrative) life as a cartoonist.

About the Author

Dan Piraro was born in Kansas City, grew up in Tulsa, and lived in Dallas for many years. His comic strip, Bizarro, runs daily in more than 200 markets across North America and was voted Best Single-Panel Cartoon by the National Cartoonists Society for an unprecedented three straight years. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
