Bill Griffith Summary Ô 9 review Ø E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ø Bill Griffith Bill Griffith is best known as the creator of the Zippy daily comic strip currently running in over 300 newspapers nationwide but Zippy was conceived as an underground comix character before he became embraced in the mainstream and Griffith himself was a seminal figure in the underground comix movement during which he was a cartoonist an editor and an entrepreneur 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 Beginning in 1970 Griffith contributed stories to a long list of legendary undergrounds Lost and Found is not only a collection of these underground. This is a huge 360 page collection of Griffith s older and obscure comics for the hardcore fans Some of the familiar characters like Zippy Griffy and Mr The Toad are here but there are other stranger often R rated comics This is definitely not for anyone who is easily offended There s rampant nudity sex drugs language and of course ever present non seuiturs If you re a fan of Invisible Ink there are two comics in this book that cover Griffith s early life and touch on some of the same time periods and events as that book If you re a fan or collector this book is worthwhile Otherwise you should probably skip it and get something modern like the Zippy annuals

Bill Griffith Summary Ô 9 review Ø E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ø Bill Griffith Liest appearances of Zippy not seen in any other collection Zippy fans will be happy to see the very first Zippy stories from 1971 to 1974 when Zippy was primarily a sidekick for Griffith’s first major character Mr The Toad Also included is a 19 page unfinished never before published comics version of the first few scenes from the Zippy movie screenplay Zippyvision Intended as a companion piece to the unproduced film the story details Zippy’s sideshow origins and his later life in a boarding house catering to showbiz wannabes Previously uncollected later work features Griffith’s comics for High Times The National Lampoon The San Francisco Examiner and The New Yorker Bill Griffith Lost and Found finally collects the work of one of the great pioneering cartoonists. Lost and Found is a freewheeling raunchy collection of work than Griffith s usual Zippy the Pinhead book Oh Zippy s here too some of his earliest appearances in fact back when he was Mr Toad s sidekick and not vice versa show up in this volume but here Zippy gets nekkid A lot And he s not alone either This is Bill Griffith s unbridled id at work Along with the usual social commentary and surreal non seuiturs this book features cartoon characters getting busy often than not Now I like that kind of thing but I also think it necessary to provide fair warning if it isn t already obvious that this ain t no kiddie comic bookIt isn t all smut though by any means Griffith s character analyses include pieces on Liberace the absurdist playwright Alfred Jarry and the painter Henri Rousseau We find out about Zippy the Pinhead s relationship to Saturday Night Live s The Coneheads And there is also serious self analysis both in comic form I especially liked the revelation Griffy gives himself at the finale of Cast of Characters p241 1980 and in the Introduction Thinking Inside the Box an extended autobiographical pieceThis Fantagraphics edition is typically solid and well produced with crisp reproductions of each comic on heavy paper stock I don t know that I d hand this to someone as their first exposure to Griffith s body of work but if you re up for it there s a lot of meat here As it were yow
