Synopses & Reviews
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.
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.
