Happy 25th anniversary Bizarro

Last Friday was Dan Piraro’s 25th anniversary of his Bizarro comic panel in syndication.

You may think that all of that adds up to fame and fortune, but you’d be wrong. I’m a little bit famous, in some areas, in some circles, and not at all rich. But I’m not complaining. I’ve made a nice living doing what I like on my own time, and I’d be an arrogant ass to not be abundantly grateful. My dad often tells this story on himself â?? when I was in the 9th grade he often told me that if I didn’t stop drawing all over my school notebooks and study harder, I was never going to amount to anything. This happened to be one of the few times he was wrong about such things and man, am I glad.

Read his full blog announcement. He’s posted early Bizarro panels which is always interesting to see the stylistic changes over one’s career.

Congratulations to Dan….a terrific cartoonist. 25 years of panels without a main character is a tough, tough road. Great job.

Dan does some brilliant work… and should have won the Reuben already.

25 years? I guess time flies when you’re laughing.

What a remarkable run. Bizarro has been so consistent in quality. Congratulations!
