Overview

The Big Book of Weirdos is an anthology of sixty-seven case studies of peculiar people whose quirks and queer behavior have reserved them personal pedestals in the sanctum of the strange. Lavishly illustrated by some of today’s top comic and graphic novel artists, this compendium of crackpot conduct brings all the tics and twitches of celebrity weirdness vividly to life.

Spanning more than 2,000 years and several continents, the outlandish lives chronicled in this volume comprise an alternate history of the world in which the irrational makes sense, the outré seems everyday, and the outrageous is par for the course. Curious characters from all walks of life and all social strata are represented in dynamically drawn scenarios that capture the essence of their eccentricity. Among the subjects: Caligula, Ivan the Terrible, Idi Amin, Rasputin, Edgar Allan Poe, Franz Kafka, William S. Burroughs, Howard Hughes, Ed Wood, Jr., Salvador Dali, and J. Edgar Hoover.
