  • CT – Lost & Found Signing

    Bill Griffith signs at Real Art Ways on Saturday March 3, 2012 at 3pm.

    Press Release:

    Bill Griffiths will share his new book Bill Griffith: Lost & Found, a collection Pre-Zippy underground classics.

    Bill Griffith will sign books afer his reading. Lost & Found will be available for purchase in the cafe.

    Bill Griffith: Lost & Found collects hundreds of Griffith’s early underground comics, most of them long out of print and unavailable. Much of the work will be unfamiliar and a real revelation to those readers who only know Griffith from his long-running Zippy strip.

    “In two decades, Bill Griffith’s Zippy the Pinhead has been transformed from a one-shot gag into the idiot savant of our whirling consumer culture… Griffy’s tirades against advertising, truckers’ caps, and Bruce Springsteen are hilarious, but he’d be just another elitist snotball without Zippy’s cut-and-paste giddiness. Together they’re irresistible: the good cop/bad cop of surrealist social criticism… Zippy’s not the biggest fool this country has — we elect those — but he is our best.” – Entertainment Weekly

    “Griffith has actually made room for essays and meditations on the ‘funnies’ page. No other strip challenges the reader in such a smart way.” – Time Magazine online
    “Zippy the Pinhead… he’s like a word processor with dyslexia!” – Robin Williams

    About Bill Griffith
    Bill Griffith grew up in Levittown, New York. He attended Pratt Institute and studied painting and graphic arts concurrently with Kim Deitch — they dropped out about the same time. Inspired by Zap, Griffith began making underground comics in 1969, and joined the cartoonists in San Francisco in 1970. Griffith’s famous character Zippy the Pinhead made his initial appearances in early underground comic books, morphing into a syndicated weekly strip in 1976 and then a nationally-syndicated daily strip a decade later. Griffith is married to cartoonist and editor Diane Noomin. They live in Connecticut.
