Another comic which started life as a traditional syndicated newspaper strip, Bizarro by Dan Piraro also migrated online some years ago. Piraro uses Bizarro to tell “about the incredibly surreal things that happen to all of us in our so-called ‘normal’ lives,” according to an interview published on dailyink.com in 2010. He makes extensive use of exaggeration and puns, for example, when a member of a band is out of ‘toon.
Since its start in 1985, Bizarro has been nominated repeatedly for awards by the National Cartoonists Society. After nine consecutive years of nomination, it finally won in 2010.
Bizarro was one of the comics that I began reading in my local paper as an adult, and even when a busy schedule has by necessity minimized my daily reading, it continues to be one of the fun asides of my day.
