Ding Dong Daddy from Dingburg (Zippy Annual #10)

by

Ding Dong Daddy from Dingburg (Zippy Annual #10) Cover

 

Review-A-Day

"Griffith has...lasted amazingly. Ding Dong Daddy from Dingburg never loses the keen edge of commentary on the look and feel of Middle America, his alternative to television sitcoms with his own heavily pointed laugh track. ...The early part of the 21st century may someday be seen as a Zippy Reality. It's not exactly a cheerful thought, but it is very, very funny." Paul Buhle, Rain Taxi (Read the entire Rain Taxi review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Zippy's latest collection of daily and color strips (with additional pages!), the tour of "Dingburg" continues; we drop in on dozens of Dingburgers and observe them in their natural habitat. The city "inhabited entirely by pinheads" can be seen as a metaphor for the world we live in today — or not.

In any event, we watch as Zippy and his fellow Dingburg residents hunt and bag "Speedy Alka Seltzer," hear voices in their refrigerators, become addicted to Riboflavin, enjoy fondling newsprint, believe that "wahoo bark" attracts the opposite sex, and worship Joan Rivers.

There's also the extended series in which Zippy has a long (and donut-based) conversation with God and another in which we meet a pinhead poet who bears a striking resemblance to Charles Bukowski. Are we having fun yet?

Review:

"No other strip challenges the reader in such a smart way." Time

Synopsis:

Dingburg stories, plus God and Joan Rivers in an extra-long Zippy collection.
