Anthropomorphic Adopted Son


Bizarro is brought to you today by My Ghost.

As I mentioned earlier this week, I was raptured last Saturday night and now reside in Heaven, but they have Internet so I can still produce cartoons and upload them to King Features for syndication. Heaven isn’t what they led me to believe it would be in the Sunday School coloring books of my childhood. In Heaven, everyone gets to rule their own city and everything is always on sale. Here’s mine.

Today’s offering from the Bizarro cartoon kitchen is one that I collaborated on with the estimable Victor Rivera. Never heard of him? You will. (Actually, you just did, in the sentence above.) Victor first started sending me his cartoon ideas when he was a young teen and I’ve used a fair number over the years. (How many, Victor? 25? More?) He’s now in college as a theater major at some hillbilly university in the mountains somewhere and doing wonderfully. I couldn’t be more proud of him if he were my own son. Although I would be very suspicious of his mother because he doesn’t look a thing like me.

For the complete story about my rapture, see this link.

  1. 1. You are selling your fans?????

    2. Did you know hokey pokey is an icecream flavour in New Zealand? I imagine the way you have pictured it in your cartoon is just how they make it. Also available in vegan… :)

    3. That monster cat is eating a woman and you are doing nothing about it.

  2. Obama just extended the Patriot Act. Now I don’t want to say “I told you so”, when I said he was just like Bush, but…

    Regardless, Obama, and EVERY member of Congress who voted for this unconstitutional act (Republican and Democrat) MUST be voted out of office.

  3. Hi Dan,

    I realize this is YOUR blog, so you can write about anything you want, but I have to comment on your continual Christian bashing (especially during this whole stupid “rapture is going to happen” scenario).

    We are all entitled to believe what we want, but it’s important to realize that one whacked out nut job predicting the end of the world does NOT represent the views of most Christians. I’m sure that these types of situations make for fantastic comics and/or stand-up comedy routines, but when you continually come down on a group for what they believe, it’s just not funny anymore.

    The supposed coming rapture is a prime example of overkill in the name of humour. You’ve produced some interesting artwork on the subject and some of it was down right hilarious! Unfortunately, your humour turns mean and starts to multiply, and THAT is what starts the mocking.

    That’s my 2¢ on the matter. Whether you read this or not, I feel better just getting it off my chest. I think you are one of the wittiest people I ‘know” and I love your work (well…most of it) so I hate to see these negative qualities. At any rate, I appreciate the freedom we have in Canada to say what’s on our minds, and to disagree without a huge battle ensuing.

    Best regards,


    • Thanks for your comments, Pamela. I’m sorry my recent post offended you, my intention wasn’t to ridicule all Christians, but just those that believed in the rapture of May 21, which was likely very very few. But I can see how you took it to mean more. On the other hand, I have no belief in any mythology and sometimes skewer the subject in general, I hope not in an insulting way. Most of my family is Christian so I have no desire to insult them. Hope we can still be friends.

      • Absolutely, we can still be friends :-)

        Thank you for explaining your viewpoint. I have issues with jerks like Mr. Doomsday myself…they make it hard for “normal” Christians in so many ways. I didn’t realize that your post was only referencing Dr. Doom and not all Christians, so I appreciate that clarification. As for “skewering the subject in general” – lets just say I get weird looks from people when I start laughing out loud while reading Bizarro :-)

        Thanks Dan. I love Bizarro – and you might like to know that because of your passionate beliefs regarding veganism and vegetarianism, I’ve been trying to eat less meat and adopt a more vegetarian approach to eating. It’s because of your writings on how the industry treats animals and processes them for food that I started really looking at my diet, so thank you for sharing your beliefs in this blog.
