9780984681464: Amazing Facts and Beyond

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Leon Beyond—part John Hodgman, part out-of-date school textbook—is the know-it-all, relentless-fact-baking brain child of cartoonists Kevin Huizenga and Dan Zettwoch.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.

From the Back Cover:

“The most merciful thing in the world [...] is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. [...] but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.”―H.G. Lovecraft

Leon Beyond is the know-it-all, fact-baking brain-child of cartoonists Kevin Huizenga and Dan Zettwoch. For four solid years Leon Beyond dropped dubious knowledge every week in the comics section of the St. Louis Riverfront Times and then disappeared! His tidbits and trivia have changed our understanding of the world forever. Amazing Facts & Beyond collects the comic-strip’s best and most mental adventures. Stretch your brain and enter the world of memory palaces, volcano graffiti, baseball slang, rap commercials, and much more. Mark your avante-garde cat calendar as you travel to the Pancake and Eggs Nebula!

Meticulously un-researched and full of beautiful cartooning, Amazing Facts & Beyond is the postmodern successor to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not. Features include a comprehensive uncivilizedbooks.com Beyondex, behind-the-scenes photographs, and a special color section. Feel free to scratch ’n sniff! There are no stickers.

About the Author:

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.
