Loose Parts is the oddly intelligent, weirdly entertaining and impulsively funny comic that graces newspaper pages, websites and refrigerator doors all across North America (and on other continents with smart people, too). It roams living rooms, medieval castles and science labs; it peeks into suburban kitchens and operating rooms and treks to outer space and beyond, all in the search of funny. It views the world from a different angle so you don't hurt your neck trying to do it for yourself. In Loose Parts, all the people are dumber than each other and the animals are smarter than everyone else.

About the Creator

Loose Parts is created by Dave Blazek, who - when he's not drawing wolverines performing rhinoplasty - is an illustrator, writer, animator, TV and Radio producer, and reformed standup comedian with two medium intestines instead of the standard large and small. Blazek's advertising work has earned more than 120 local, national and international creative awards including a Clio and several ADDYs (all currently being used to hold doors open and/or smash garlic). He was one of the leaders of MediaLab, the groundbreaking newspaper marketing group at The Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News, until he left to concentrate even more brainpower on Loose Parts. And oh yeah, he previously helped create the comic Dr. Katz Professional Therapist for Comedy Central

Bazek won the National Cartoonists Society Best Panel Reuben Award in 2019 and 2020. No fewer than six Loose Parts books are in circulation, available on the Internet closest to you. Several more books are still rattling around in Blazek's brain pan and are only available via mental telepathy.

Blazek actually has a real degree in Journalism from Penn State. In his spare time he plays the piano and guitar, runs like a fool and hikes any mountain taller than his head. He succeeded in marrying a beautiful woman with horrible eyesight, and he and Eileen live in the woods right next to Valley Forge National Park. It's there where he drinks good beer, stares at blank ceilings and comes up with the ideas that make Loose Parts a can't-miss moment in people's daily lives.
