    One thought on “Bizarro and Other Strange Manifestations of the Art of Dan Piraro”

    1. I found this to be an incredibly satisfying book. Very funny comics, amusing and interesting autobiographical information, and comments about his view of his artwork. I love artists who have an original and irreverent and wacky sense of humor and Piraro does. And I appreciate skewed and black/serious humor which Bizarro has. So, my new second favorite comics guy is Dan Piraro; I think my favorite is still Gary Larson’s The Far Side. But I also like several others so this is high praise. Oh my [...]

    2. I saw this book being promoted at my local library and decided to grab it just because I love reading about artists and looking at the artwork that they have done. I aligned alot with Mr. Piraro, being that he came from Oklahoma and various parts of the bible belt and did not quite align with the beliefs prevalent in the area. Liberals are a rare breed in Oklahoma, so it's no wonder he found more to his liking in the melting pot that is New York City (also a city I am fond of, and who wouldn't b [...]

    3. (More pictures at parkablogs)This book was so good I read it all in one seating.The book is written in first person by Mr Dan Piraro himself. This book is about his life, career and comics. His write up is almost as hilarious as his comics. He seems to have a very interesting life, and the book tells it all.Included are also some interesting and very unusual self portraits (photos). One is nude — with the shadows hiding the crucial parts of course! Another amusing photo is one with him spottin [...]

    4. This is Bizarro for the completist. This book includes not only tons of newspaper strips, but also many examples of the artist’s other works. Fans of “Bizarro,” with its space aliens, hidden picture games, and bouffant hairdos, might be a bit taken aback by the artist’s oil paintings (which include nudes) and randy unpublished comics.

    5. This book may have changed my life. I finished reading it weeks ago and i still haven't been able to reconcile my eating habits since.

    6. Wow! I used to think of Bizarro as a take off of The Far Side, but Dan Piraro is a fascinating artist in his own right. Love his humor, and love finding out about the artist behind the jokes.
