I found this book in P!Q in Grand Central Terminal on the way to work. I laughed my head off.

Cartoonist Dan Piraro draws a comic online called Bizarro. This book must be cartoons culled from the title. I had never heard of Bizarro, but the book has some great cartoons in it. One captioned “Spiderman Walking His Dog” (2016-04-19 002)shows an ordinary street scene with people walking down the street. Up in the right hand corner is a dog on a least who is choking. Apparently Spiderman doesn’t “walk” his dog but zips around on his webs, dragging poor Fido with him. In another, the Joker strikes again at the diner, where Batman and Robin are eating and Batman has discovered that the top of the salt shaker has been loosened.

I liked the book so much that I bought one for a friend of mine. This is just a fun book that will make you laugh.
