Zippy Type Z Personality
by : Fantagraphics
America's last great newspaper strip presented the way it should be read. Bill Griffith's Zippy, the Pinhead is a pop culture icon. The surrealist-leaning character is one of the most recognisable figures in comics. This new Zippy collection features approximately a year's worth of strips, from November 2004 through November 2005, including full-colour Sundays. Part satire, part philosophy and part surrealism, Zippy is one having fun pinhead and the perfect antidote to the real world. Zippy dabbles in haiku, visits the malls of Australia, talks to Albert Einstein, lampoons Manga and goes into a deep trance while bowling. And if all that wasn't enough, Zippy insults Dick Cheney while imagining he's the hood ornament on a 1931 Studebaker.
