Zippy: Type 'z' Personality
By

Rating
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 recognizable figures on the newspaper pages, seen by tens of millions of people a day. Syndicated by King Features since 1986, Zippy is read in hundreds of daily newspapers across the country, while the Pinhead's trademark non sequitur, "Are we having fun yet?," has become so often repeated it's in "Bartlett's Familiar Quotations," His likeness has been graffitied on the Berlin Wall and aped for "Saturday Night Live"'s classic "Conehead" sketches.
This new Zippy collection features approximately a year's worth of strips, from November 2004 through November 2005, including full-color Sundays. Unlike most newspaper pages, the book sports top-notch reproduction worthy of Griffith's master draftsmanship. Part satire, part philosophy, and part surrealism, Zippy is one having fun pinhead and the perfect antidote to the real world.
In "Type "Z" Personality," Zippy's new collection of daily and Sunday strips, 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.

Bill Griffith's Zippy the Pinhead rose to prominence in San Francisco, going from a Bay Area countercultural favourite to an international icon when Griffith's hometown paper, The San Francisco Examiner, asked Griffith to turn this weekly into a syndicated daily.
