|Now in stock: Zippy: Ding Dong Daddy from Dingburg by Bill Griffith|
|Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Zippy the Pinhead, new releases, Bill Griffith||20 Sep 2010 6:23 AM|
Just arrived in our warehouse and ready to ship:
216-page black & white/color 8.5" x 8.5" softcover • $18.99
In Zippy’s latest collection of daily and color strips (with additional pages!), the tour of “Dingburg” continues; we drop in on dozens of Dingburgers and observe them in their natural habitat. The city “inhabited entirely by pinheads” can be seen as a metaphor for the world we live in today — or not.
In any event, we watch as Zippy the Pinhead and his fellow Dingburg residents hunt and bag “Speedy Alka Seltzer,” hear voices in their refrigerators, become addicted to Riboflavin, enjoy fondling newsprint, believe that “wahoo bark” attracts the opposite sex, and worship Joan Rivers.
There’s also the extended series in which Zippy has a long (and donut-based) conversation with God and another in which we meet a pinhead poet who bears a striking resemblance to Charles Bukowski. Are we having fun yet?
