Bizarro creator Dan Piraro talks to the Houston Chronicle about all the “secret symbols” that pop up in his comic strip, like the stick of dynamite next to Batman’s cape in the cartoon above. According to Piraro, “It refers to my wife, who changed almost everything about my life instantaneously, like an explosion. Not just in sappy, sentimental ways, but philosophically. She made me aware of the plight of animals and the environment at the hands of our rabid consumerism, and I’ve not seen the world the same since.”
