Definition of Bizarro

My first post will be explaing what Bizarro is I got this from the Bizarro Starter Kit but if want more information about Bizarro just look at this site.

1. Bizarro, simply put, is the genre of the weird.
2. Bizarro is literature's equivalent to the cult section at the video store.
3. Like cult movies, Bizarro is sometimes surreal, sometimes goofy, sometimes bloody, and sometimes borderline pornographic.
4. Bizarro often contains a certain cartoon logic that, when applied to the real world, creates an unstable universe where the bizarre becomes the norm and absurdities are made flesh.
5. Bizarro strives not only to be strange, but fascinating, thought-provoking, and, above all, fun to read.
6. Bizarro was created by a group of small press publishers in response to the increasing demand for (good) weird fiction and the increasing number of authors who specialize in it.
7. Fictitious Examples of Bizarro: Franz Kafka meets Joe Bob Briggs
Dr. Seuss of the post-apocalypse
Japanese animation directed by David Lynch
Alice in Wonderland for adults
