Zippy the Pinhead has been one of my favorite comics since I first saw it in the Washington Post about six years ago. It’s been around for quite a while, and the author, Bill Griffith, has even done adult-oriented comics. The thing is, I’m not quite sure why I like it — more than half the time I just don’t get the joke. Perhaps it’s the distorted, personified view of Americana like burger joints and diners, or maybe it’s the non-sequiter nature of the dialogue. But I have a feeling it’s just the fact that the main character is a demented clown.
Anyone else a fan of this bizzaro-art? -ram
