interview

Huizenga & Zettwoch Make Up “Facts” About “Leon Beyond”
“Disney was interested in bringing out “Midnight Madness” on Blu-ray, and we talked them into letting us use Leon as a character to kind of bring him back into circulation. We had already decided the strip would be called “Amazing Facts and Beyond,” so Leon Beyond was a natural fit, and their lawyers’ signed off on that. The idea was for us to act like Leon was a real guy, and so we always created this facade of that there was a real Leon Beyond and that he was writing these strips. There was some talk of Leon spinning off into new CGI movie, or a Disney Channel show, but that all fell apart once Tom Wright, the author of the novelization of “Midnight Madness,” and his lawyers got involved.”

The Book


Uncivilized Books have acquired world rights to the book collection AMAZING FACTS…AND BEYOND! WITH LEON BEYOND by cartoonists Kevin Huizenga and Dan Zettwoch, it was announced by Tom Kascyinski, publisher at Uncivilized Books. To be released in Winter 2014, AMAZING FACTS…AND BEYOND! WITH LEON BEYOND collects over 200 of the weekly trivia-based comic strip, and will also include extra adventures and an alphabetized Beyondex™ for easy reference.

”Leon Beyond is one of those guys who has a 'Did You Know?' for every occasion,” said Kaszyinski, ”and usually it is something that I did not know, even though I am well-educated and have read fairly widely.”

Yes, these are the famous “lost” Leon Beyond strips. Recently unearthed in a warehouse basement in St. Louis, Missouri, these comic strips are very rare and have been barely seen anywhere before. A traveling exhibition, organized by Todd Hignite, will accompany publication, and could appear in New York, Saint Louis, Los Angeles, and the Angouleme Museum des Bandes Dessines.

Fact Sheet:
• ”lost strips” of Amazing Facts and Beyond! with Leon Beyond
• over 200 pages
• weekly trivia-based comic strips contained amazing facts on different topics like: dinosaurs, cars, watches, Stonehenge.
• activity pages for kids and book clubs
• large index for easy reference
• SFW

Because of the questionable and offensive material contained in these ”censored” strips, authors Dan Zettwoch and Kevin Huizenga have asked that their names be removed from the project. In conjunction, Leon Beyond will also appear on “collectable merchandise,” sure to be great gift ideas, and a “documentary film” to be released in Spring 2016.
