Close on the heels of The Big Book of Urban Legends comes a companion volume of comic-strip biographies of a motley assortment of 67 crackpots, visionaries, despots, prophets, performers, and others whose peculiarities supposedly elevate them above mere eccentricity into the realm of the truly bizarre.
From Dostoyevsky to Dali, from Hitler to Ford, if the history of humankind teaches us anything, it's that the most brilliant individuals of any era were often the most peculiar as well. In fact, they were positively weird.
Presented in a uniquely engaging illustrated format, the "alternative lifestyles" of 67 crackpots and visionaries have been graphically interpreted by an equal number of today's most popular comic artists.
