Details

Born in underground comix, the surrealist character is now one of the most recognizable characters on the newspaper pages, and is currently in production as an animated series to debut on the Showtime Network in 2002. Syndicated since 1986 by King Features, ZIPPY is read in over 200 newspapers seven days a week. Zippy's trademark non-sequitur, 'Are we having fun yet?' has become so often-repeated that it is now in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations. His likeness was graphittied on the former Berlin Wall, while Dan Akroyd is rumored to have created his Saturday Night Live characters,the Coneheads, after seeing Zippy for the first time. With ZIPPY ANNUAL 2001 (a.k.a. 'Z2K1'), all of Griffith's hilarious strips from 2000 and 2001 are collected into one place to guide us into the 21st Century. Millennium fever never seemed so, well, absurd. Frivolity is a stern taskmasker, and these brilliant black-and-white dailies and color Sundays (Griffith is a master of color and the printing process of the newspaper page) spotlight Griffith's inimitably existential and surreal sense of humor. 'Bill Griffith's nationally syndicated Zippy continually streaches the intellectual bounds of the daily newspaper strip,' writes the San Francisco Examiner. Plus, it's damn funny.
