Jonathan D. Howells is putting the finishing touches on a long-simmering documentary about Jim Woodring.

Bill Griffith turned in his spectacular cover to the upcoming WELCOME TO DINGBURG Zippy collection, which focuses heavily on Dingburg, the "city inhabited solely by pinheads."

Enjoy your sneak peek at the original to the cover (we're keeping the map under wraps for now), and look for the book late this year.
