Bizarro

Dan Piraro

Bizarro is a surreal comic panel where eyeballs hover, dynamite sizzles, upside-down birds soar and a slice of pie hides in every corner. Bizarro is the means by which cartoonist Dan Piraro unleashes both his secret symbols and uniquely eccentric view of the world on comics fans every day. Highly praised for its detail-driven artwork and off-the-wall humor, Bizarro has massive appeal among audiences who enjoy alternative humor.

Bizarro takes a surreal, satirical and, yes, even bizarre look at our idiosyncratic world. Tweaking simple everyday things with his twisted imagination and award-winning artistic abilities, Piraro deftly proves why he has won The National Cartoonists Society’s "Best Newspaper Cartoon Panel" an unprecedented three years in a row (2000, 2001 and 2002). He also received nominations again in 2006 and 2007. Piraro won the prestigious Reuben Award for “Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year” from the National Cartoonists Society in 2010.

Bizarro entered syndication in 1985 with Chronicle Features as a replacement to Gary Larson’s famous Far Side, which had moved to Universal Press Syndicate. Ten years later, Bizarro moved to Universal just as Larson retired. Today, Bizarro is distributed internationally by King Features Syndicate to more than 350 daily and Sunday newspapers.
