Tiny Pad Tweet


Bizarro is brought to you today by Cranky Bikers.

I got an email today from a graphic designer whose name is “Klein”. Since he works with graphics, is a master of keyboard shortcuts, and wears nothing but a tanktop-T and boxer shorts, he felt a special kinship to this cartoon. I love that no matter how randomly I choose a name for a cartoon, I often hear from readers of the same name in similar circumstances. Sometimes it has been uncannily similar. If I could remember a couple of instances, it would have made this paragraph worth reading.


Here’s a little ditty about an iPad of a different sort. I like to draw frogs. I have not heard from anyone named “Marty”. This paragraph wasn’t particularly worth reading, either, but at least it is shorter.




My last cartoon today was a collaboration with my known associate, Wayno. Although the idea was essentially his, I drew myself on the couch. The face is covered, so it could be anyone, really, but I managed to sneak in a tiny moustache (old-world spelling) to show that it is me. I would have drawn Wayno, but his features are so average that I opted for myself instead. Plus, I’m an uncontrollable ego maniac.

Here is my Bizarro iPhone app.

Here is my latest book.

Here is a pic of me living in an elevator because everyone reads my cartoons online for free instead of buying papers, where my income comes from. Please buy a book and the app.

  1. I can’t help but think that perhaps the genesis of the tiny patient cartoon was related to enlarging just one part of the patient in a way that didn’t necessitate taking Viagra™. Or perhaps, as my wife occasionally says, there’s just something wrong with me.

    Have you considered setting up a system allowing anyone to get virtually any of your cartoons printed on a T-shirt or mug or the like (versus the maybe 5 different comics this can be done with on your website)? There’s been a number of comics that would seem to make perfect gifts printed that way, yet there doesn’t really seem to be an option to do so.

    I haven’t got an iPhone so buying the app doesn’t quite make sense, and I’m trying to avoid acquiring hardcopy books right now as I’m likely to be making a long-distance move in the not-so-distant future and I’d prefer something electronic anyways.

  5. I don’t know if you’re aware of it, but there’s a subtle pun in your “Klein” drawing. Klein means “small” in Afrikaans or Dutch.

  6. Thought you might be interested to know that today (Jun 29 ) the comments section of the Comics Curmudgeon is full of alternate captions for your Easter Island Head in a bar cartoon. My fav so far ‘Sorry, can’t serve you – you’re already stoned’.

  8. You’re not an ego-maniac. If that were the case, you would have drawn yourself with much more hair.

    Anyway, is it just me, or is there clearly a piece of pie sitting between you and your therapist in that picture? I haven’t been able to stop thinking about whose it is and what flavor it might be. In my heart, the answer is yours and peach. But I suppose I’ll never know…

  9. Links to your books? I will buy if our pitiful social security “retirement” allowance can afford such an indulgence. We do buy papers, actually, or my husband does. The problem is, they keep raising the prices. Today, USA Today went from $1 to $2. Regardless of what you think of it, that’s a pretty hefty price hike. And the Boston Herald (where they carry your stuff) is up to $4 on Sundays and $2.50 during the week … AND it’s hard to get out here in the middle of nowhere. I wouldn’t want you to wind up living in an elevator! Me neither … so if you books come in paperback (not Kindle I guess) … but a link would speed me on my way! If I buy a book, does that mean I can still laugh at your stuff online? I love laughing. There’s so little to laugh about any more.
