Zippy & Me


Yesterday, Saturday April 6, I was privileged to interview Bill Griffith, longtime weirdo and creator of Zippy the Pinhead (along with so many other great comics) at the MOCCA Fest in NYC. Here's Bill at the Fantagraphics table at MOCCA, showing off the newest Zippy collection, now available thru the link at the sidebar here.

Zippy-de-do-dah 😝

I do remember the cartoon but I no longer read it as it's not carried anymore by most. Definitely good for it's genre.

Thanks Paul. I think Zippy still prefers his Asian food with MSG. It gives it that bite and 'zip' it's now missing 😊

Nice picture Paul. Every now and again I get reminded that I have been so lucky to get to know such a well know and famous fella!

Likewise, Patty!

Great to know that Griffiths is still extant! I want him to autograph my Hello Kitty pillow.

I've enjoyed Zippy since his debut in the S.F. Chronicle, oh, so many moons ago. But I'd never seen a picture of the author until now. Why do I get the impression that Griffith and Joe Biden were separated at birth?

Bill Griffiths is a genius, I'm jealous that you got to meet him. The nearest I've come is getting my Zippy annual signed, but I had to send it to him to do that. Zippy is one of the best web graphic novels ever!

All 9 annuals are on sale at the minute by the way, head over to Bill's site and have a look.
