Piraro Expresses Regret Over Strip


This New Year's Bizarro cartoon was neither an oblique shot at Brokeback Mountain nor was it a veiled reference to the Matthew Shepard case, the cartoonist says, but simply a joke. Click through the image for much more from Dallas' comics columnist Mike Peters. I'm reminded of a popular Second City sketch from the George Wendt/Richard Kind era that made roughly the same joke without anyone complaining.

As an aside, Piraro's work is much more visually sumptuous than I remember it being, although that's probably my bad memory.
