Bizarro World

 BIZW   (DC, 2005)

™ and © DC Comics, Inc.

The acclaimed Bizarro Comics hardcover relied on a framing sequence (involving Bizarro and Mxyzptlk) to justify the existence of the bizarreness it contained. Now, more firmly established in readers’ minds, we don’t need no stinking framing sequence! We don’t need no stinking justification! Bizarro comics am fun! Who contributed to Bizarro World? Peter Bagge and Gilbert Hernandez am not on board with Red Bee story. Kyle Baker no contribute hilarious Alfred story. Eddie Campbell no write Flash. Ellen Forney no draw Wonder Girl. Also no contributions from Tony Millionaire, Paul Dini, Sarah Dyer, Jason Yungbluth, Johnny Ryan, Harvey Pekar, James Kochalka, and many, many less. (This being Bizarro–speak, of course they did, as did many others!) The Bizarre ideas explored include The JLA’s “take your kids to work day,” Kamandi as “the laziest boy on Earth,” some p.o.’d Legion rejects, and Green Lantern’s yellow-phobia. Many of the best ideas spring from prime instigator Evan Dorkin. One quibble: Contents pages are next to useless, when pages aren’t numbered!

As the saying goes, “Don’t ask—just buy it!”

— Jack Abramowitz
