Drawn by artist Dan Piraro, Bizarro is a single panel cartoon strip that has been published since 1985 and has been published in more than 360 newspapers and magazines.
Piraro, one of the old school cartoonists, has made the transition to web-based comics, a completely different ball game where the competition is fierce and most artists struggle to make a living from even what basic of his trade.
Piraro is a prolific artist who aims to make a new comic every day, 365 days a year. Residing somewhere in Mexico with his beloved wife (whom he refers to as his ‘Olive Oyl’), his version of the absurdity and nonsense of modern life is designed to make you think as well as laugh.
According to his bio, his single pane gems are a “unique blend of surreal imagery, social commentary, and clever puns. In fact, if Salvador Dali, Garry Trudeau and Oscar Wilde had an illegitimate child, that child would be Dan Piraro ”.
While he has produced thousands of comics with a variety of themes and themes, this list deals exclusively with therapy. Piraro often also includes his “secret symbols” in his comics, the number he has included is indicated just above his signature. Look for an eyeball (the eyeball of observation), a piece of cake (the cake of opportunity), a rabbit (the bunny of exuberance), an alien in a spaceship (the flying saucer of possibility), the abbreviation “K2” (referring to his sons Krelspeth and Krapuzar), a crown (the Crown of Power), a stick of dynamite (the Dynamite of Unintended Consequences), a shoe (the Lost Moccasin), an arrow (The Arrow of Vulnerability), a tail fish (The Fish of Humility) and an upside-down bird (the Inverted Bird).
