Klappentext

A YEAR OF THE PINHEAD IN ONE VOLUME Bill. Griffith's Zippy the Pinhead is a pop culture icon and 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 over 200 daily newspapers across the country and the pinhead's trademark non-sequitur, "Are we having fun yet?, " has become so often-repeated that it's now in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations. Zippy Annual 2003 collects approximately a year's worth of strips, including full-color Sundays, and spotlights Zippy's ongoing love affair with "Brand X" America in all its faded roadside glory. He puts in a prolonged stay at Las Vegas's unheralded and off-the-beaten-strip tourist attraction, the "Neon Boneyard, " repository of discarded casino signs and the 30-foot tall "Mr. Lucky, " who's seen better days. There's even a "backlash" sequence where Zippy's "supporting cast" (Griffy, Claude, Toad, Shelf-Life and occasional wife Zerbina) intervene in order to hold Zippy to his "contractual obligations" and to interact more with them. Will Zippy come home again? Other forays include a peek at Zippy's P.T. Barnum sideshow origins as well as Griffy's childhood days in rural New Hampshire, along with visits to Japan, Levittown and Fred Astaire. In an extended continuity series, Zippy goes back in time to the early 1900's where he lives in a castle and cavorts with a guy who thinks he's Sherlock Holmes. Are we having a searchable database yet?
