Gratis frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.Ignatz award Nomination for Outstanding Collection Leon Beyond--part John Hodgman, part out-of-date school textbook--is the know-it-all, relentless-fact-baking brain child of cartoonists Kevin Huizenga and Dan Zettwoch. Leon's knowledge was catalogued weekly in the St. Louis Riverfront Times. Amazing Facts and Beyond collects the comic-strip's best and most outrageous moments. Discover the world of optilusors, Robert Skur, dance notation and grooved disc jellyfish. Learn new words and concepts: winkaton or optogenerian. Mark your extreme calendar before you travel to the pancake and eggs nebula. Meticulously un-researched and full of dubious knowledge, Amazing Facts and Beyond is the modern successor to Ripley's Believe It Or Not. Featuring guest contributions by Ted May, and others. Dan Zettwoch is a cartoonist, illustrator, and designer. Dan's work has been published in countless anthologies. His acclaimed first book Birdseye Bristoe was published last year by Drawn and Quarterly. He lives with his wife in St. Louis, Missouri. Kevin Huizenga is cartoonist whose work has been published by Drawn & Quarterly, Marvel, Fantagraphics, Time, Slate.com and many others. His latest book Gloriana was published last year by Drawn & Quarterly. Kevin lives with his wife in St. Louis, Missouri.

Ignatz award Nomination for Outstanding Collection "Zettwoch and Huizenga's flagrant disregard for the truth makes each strip a fresh exercise in trying to decipher what is real and what is not. Topics are numerous and delightful, including spotlights on the Museum of Leftover Masterpieces, the Secret History of Dogs as Weapons, and an account of a Jesuit missionary in China who fused the art of kung fu and the Bible into a single gospel. [...] this is a book to be savored [...]"--Publishers Weekly "I feel like a pretty well-informed guy, but the great Leon Beyond taught me something new on virtually every page of this beautiful collection. Indispensable!"--Ken Jennings, all-time Jeopardy! champion and author of Brainiac and Because I Said So. "I met Leon Beyond at a party once. In the span of eleven minutes he taught me: the sordid history of pet portraits, how to cook an egg on your own body, and which trees look the most like ex-presidents. I haven't been able to forget these facts, no matter how hard I've tried!"--Lisa Hanawalt, My Dirty Dumb Eyes
Kevin Huizenga was born in 1977 in Harvey, IL and spent most of his childhood in South Holland, IL, near Chicago. He attended college in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and moved to St. Louis in 2000 where he lives and works. He began drawing comics in high school, xeroxing his first issue (with friends) at the neighborhood Jewel Osco in 1993. Since that time he's made approximately 30 more. In 2001 the Comics Journal named him "Minimalism Cartoonist of the Year" and called #14 of his "Supermonster" mini-comic series "one of the best comics of any kind released in 2001." His most recent book Gloriana was published in 2012 by Drawn & Quarterly. DAN ZETTWOCH was born in Louisville, Kentucky--the birthplace of Muhammad Ali and the cheeseburger--in 1977. He studied mathematics and illustration at Washington University. His most recent book Birdseye Bristoe was published in 2012 by Drawn & Quarterly.
