This new Zippy collection is an unexpected departure from previous editions: most of the strips in this volume chronicle the strange history, people and social mores of Zippys hometown, Dingburg, the only city in the U.S. inhabited entirely by pinheads well, aside from Washington, D.C., and certain sections of Newark.
Take a tour of Dingburgs Beatnik District, experience the festive holiday season of Nordisk, meet Dingburgs resident Cubist, watch as citizens capture Donald Trumps wig in a raid on an Atlantic City casino, and find out (at last) exactly why Zippy and his fellow Dingburgers speak in non sequiturs (its the water).
Reader response to this new Dingburg story thread has been loud and approving, with many asking for directions to the fabled enclave, somewhere 17 miles west of Baltimore. Detailed maps will be provided on the new books endpapers.
Dingburgs own favorite comic strips are also on display. Marvel at the baffling success of Fletcher & Tanya and the Dingburg kids favorite online comic, Unibrow Versus The Universe.
Also in this isue: the revealing Little Zippy series, in which Zippys magical and very weird childhood is laid bare.
And, finally, Zippy and J. Edgar Hoover (remember him?) cavort in tutus and play with loaded guns. Welcome to Dingburg!

"I am so thankful for these collections... they're so good I wonder if Griffith isn't in the middle of one of those late-period renaissances that sometimes grip strip cartoonists, where everything kind of comes together in a considered fashion that's somehow more vital than the dozen or so years of comics that precede it." – The Comics Reporter
