  • AN EXTRA-BOUNTIFUL HELPING OF ZIPPY STRIPS Comprising a full two and a half years worth of dailies and full-color Sundays, The Dingburg Diaries is the third Zippy book featuring tales of Dingburg, the City Inhabited Entirely by PinheadsZippys home town. Theres even a long series of Historical Dingburg strips, chronicling the pinhead population through the years, from 1840, when Dingburgs Town Fool accidentally invented disco, to 1958 when Dingburg Beatniks flourished in the towns Bohemian neighborhood. Like, Yowl, man. God also has his own chapter (and verse). In the guise of a clip art authority figure, he dispenses unwanted advice and conditional love upon the citizens of Dingburg. His tendency to cross-dress reaches new heights when he appears in a performance of Swine Lake, wearing a tutu. Sacrilegious, yet sensitive. There are large chunks of Mr. The Toad, Zerbina, Little Zippy and the rest of Griffiths cast of characters throughout this expanded collection. Published in a larger 8 by 10 format, The Dingburg Diaries also features a big color section, showcasing Griffiths inventive palette. There are parodies of the paintings of Edward Hopper and Film Noir, and Griffys Top Ten List On Comics and Their Creation a semi-serious mini-tutorial on everything (well, ten things) hes learned in over forty years at the drawing board.
