Death-Wish Slugs and More

(Here’s an old favorite of mine. Click the pretzel to see it so awful big.)

Hello, Bizarro Jazz Pickles. (That is what I’ve decided to call my readers. Thoughts?) I have a few fun things to tell you about today:

1. There is a short blog post about my secret symbols on a website called Daily Ink. The first and last paragraph were written by the person who runs that blog, the rest of the stuff in the middle was written by me. I didn’t want you to think that I wrote a hyperbolic phrase like “brilliant madcap masterpiece” about myself. That would be gross. Regardless, I explain my secret symbols, what they mean, how they started, and how they will figure into the salvation of mankind. (Not at all.) Read it here.

2. Daily Ink is an Internet subscription service run by King Features, who syndicates Bizarro. For 5 cents a day, you can have as many or few of King Features comics delivered in color to your email. The list is editable at any time. (NOT edible at ANY time.) You can even try it for a month and see if you like it. Look here.

3. I discovered a pretty fun cartoon that is ostensibly about a boy and his dog but is adeptly drawn and the humor is delightfully dark. I think it’s something to keep an eye on. This is one of my favorite panels. View it with your eyes now and bookmark it so we can keep an eye on him together.

4. Do four things still qualify as “a few”? Well, I’m so excited about my new book, “Bizarro Heroes” that I don’t even care. It’s a damn fun book and you’re going to like it. WAY more than $10-worth of laughs in it. Fall in love with it here. PLEASE. It’s how I pay the bills.

5. I love my Jazz Pickles.
