Bizarro is brought to you today by Bat Trash.

As most regular readers of my blog and cartoons in general know, syndicated newspaper cartoons are submitted to our distributors (King Features in my case) four-to-six weeks ahead of publication. So when I wrote and drew this Batman-meets-vampire comic, I had no idea it would appear in newspapers worldwide the day after Adam West died. He was a talented actor who is most known for playing Batman in the 1960s “Batman” TV show. I was eight years old when the show first aired and it was instantly my favorite. Batman was my favorite super hero and my toys were as dominated by Batman as a 1980s kid’s were by Star Wars. (The photo beneath the “Bat Trash” link above is of one of them.)

Since it’s just you and me talking (I’m serious, you’re my only blog reader) I’m going to talk about something personal if you’ve no objections: my prostate gland. I don’t know what it does exactly and only vaguely know where it is, but it has some kind of connection to sexual activity, I think, and it can be accessed by a doctor easily if not pleasantly. (Unless you’re REALLY attracted to your doctor, which I am not.) I’m not sure how I’m supposed to take care of it but so far, I’ve had no problems so I guess I’m doing a good job. My dad missed one of my many weddings because he had to have prostate surgery. He’s okay now, but at the time it seemed scary. So I guess it is fair to say that I’m a little afraid of my own prostate. So far, so good, though. (more…)
