A Bizarro Christmas

Regular readers of this blog know I’m a huge “Bizarro” fan. I think Dan Piraro is one of the most creative, witty and technically brilliant cartoonists currently working (or not working, for that matter). He comes up with more great gags in a week than I could ever hope to write in a year. Not many people realize that Dan is also a “fine” artist. His drawings and paintings are as wonderful as his cartoons.

Through the miracle of the Internet, I’ve been able to electronically stalk , harrass and harangue Mr. Piraro for the past several years. He’s always been gracious and generous with his insights, comments and critiques. His is an opinion I truly respect and he’s always one for an encouraging word and clever observation. He’s pretty good with the general smartass comment too.

So, you can only imagine how thrilled I was to find in the ol’ mailbox a little Christmas (a holiday Dan is no fan of) gift from the esteemed comic maestro hisself: a copy of his “Bizarro Buccaneers, Nuttin’  But Pirate Cartoons” personally inscribed and chock full off pirate gags! What a treat!

Here’s a scan…


How cool is that?

Anyway, I heartily reccommend a visit to Dan’s websitewhere you can find all sorts of Bizarro goodies. Take a minute and check out his blog… it’s not only funny, but you’ll find all kinds of info on compassionate veganism, politics and astute cultural observations. Be sure to tell him Philbert sent you!

    That’s VERY cool, Phil. I’d say Mr. is a good judge of character. Congrats. 🙂
