Bizarro Comic Book is a 1980's comic strip that was popular in libraries across America. The comic strip focused on a group of evil scientists who created many supervising characters such as The Fantastic Four and The Hulk. This team of villains would go on to fight against the good guys. They were always trying to create super powers for their evil counterparts to have a good chance of defeating them. They went through several different appearances until the series ended.
In this new comic strip the evil scientist Doctor Bizzaro has taken over his laboratory. He has created a number of animals and other weird villains to run his business. He has created a number of duplicate humans who have the potential to go into battle with the Fantastic Four if left unchecked.
Bizarros new supervising hero, Crossbones, has a number of similarities with some of Marvel's old Rogues. For example, he wears a cross, wears a skull ring, and has red hair. In this latest version the skull ring has been replaced with a pair of glowing titanium studs. This helps to give his mask a more military appearance and give him a more muscular appearance. The inclusion of glowing studs gives him a much more three dimensional look and position on the comic.
The latest cartoonist, Greg Berlanti, will be teaming up with the classic Dr. Venture, Tom Arnold as Dr. Venture, and Bobby Gilligan as Bobby. These three characters will take on the rogue scientist Bizarro in a lighthearted spoof of a Venture Bros. show. There are also other additions to this modern day Dr. Venture spin off. Crossbones, a bounty hunter with a dark past, and The Jazz Pickle Awareness Activity Center, a brain tumor removal device designed to remove brain tumors and promote brain awareness are some of the additions to the cast.
As if the new additions weren't enough to keep the audience focused on the characters of Bizarros. In this comic there is an allusion to the original Looney Tunes character Bugs Bunny. The comic is about a blind mouse who is lead into a never ending pit of danger. The first few minutes or so may seem to be a bit linear and obvious. However, once the characters start speaking and moving around the action picks up. Some of the dialog is a little repetitive, but once again the point is to keep the reader in stitches as they follow the various adventures of the blind mouse.
One of the most creative aspects of the comic is the constant references to pop culture. The jingle at the beginning of the book plays on popular tunes from decades ago such as Fats Domino's "Fidelity squared". The jingle seems to get stuck in a loop as the characters repeat it like a mantra. There are also references to other pop culture icons. A few of these include a few moments from the Shrek movies, the Pink Flamingo Hotel from Disney, and a brief mention from The Breakfast Club's Alex Karras.
The storyline of the comic is fairly unique. While the majority of the comic is about Bugs Bunny finding the missing Looney Tunes, there is also a subplot that involves Bizarros creator, Artificer Dick Dastardly, who wants to create a fantasy world where Bugs, Co. Cyndi, and Daffy Duck would be a modern day super hero team. The comic is filled with colorful and vivid imagery that constantly entertains. It is definitely worth the price of admission as the creative artwork is well worth the price of admission.
Overall, the bizarros art style and storyline is a unique take on the Looney Tunes franchise. It is a welcome departure from the cartoons and other forms of modern life that can sometimes make comics boring. The unique art style and story line make Bizarros a comic that kids will enjoy. This is especially important with a brand name that many parents feel is not too innocent and kid friendly.
