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Leon Beyond--part John Hodgman, part out-of-date school textbook--is the know-it-all, relentless-fact-baking brain child of cartoonists Kevin Huizenga and Dan Zettwoch.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 "e;St. Louis Riverfront Times."e; "e;Amazing Facts and Beyond "e;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, "e;Amazing Facts and Beyond "e;is the modern successor to "e;Ripley's Believe It Or Not."e; Featuring guest contributions by Ted May, and others.
