Bonus Track

Nearly two years ago, I submitted this doctor/patient gag as a Bizarro candidate:
Bizarro's creator, Dan Piraro, occasionally publishes cartoons in Parade, the Sunday newspaper supplement, and included his version (below) in a group of submissions. They accepted it in August of 2010.
I've been waiting ever since to post it, but we never knew when (or if) Parade ever actually ran it. Fortunately, Google came through today, and I discovered that it was in fact published in the August 21, 2011 issue, although it was severely cropped to fit into a single column.

Finding evidence of this cartoon's publication is certainly a relief, and removes one item from my list of nagging obsessions. Consider this an unreleased outtake for the eventual Piraro/Wayno cartoon box set. 

As always, please feel free to browse all of our previous collaborations in this blog's Bizarro archive.

Once again, yours--rough form though it is--is superior. It's obvious your guy is wearing a zoot suit, whereas in the published version it could just be a sick guy who's lost a lot of weight.
