and now for something completely different

a friend recently asked me about which graphic novels i could recommend. after creating a long list, i thought about what started me on the love of reading comix... other than than reading the archies and mad magazine bought for me as a kid.

so in honor of the one character and creator to bring me into the world of comix art in the 80s, here's zippy! he's irreverent, funny, and speaks in non sequiturs as he observes the world around him.

fantagraphics bookstore and gallery in seattle is kicking off a bill griffith exhibit today and promoting his new book, welcome to dingburg. wish i could go.
