The letters of the BIZMAR anagram stand for Bunny, Insect, Zombie, Monkey, Alien, Robot. It is used as a mnemonic device to keep track of the six elements of Awesome Comics. The best comic should include all six in some way ... at least in theory. Doing this can be a great creativity-boosting exercise. A BIZMAR comic must be at least one page, but not more than four. As far as I know, the BIZMAR concept was invented by Tod Parkhill and friends, of Young American Comics, sometime in the mid-to-late 1990s. In 2006 they put out a comics anthology called The Big Ol' Book of BIZMAR. This was my contribution to that book.
