I Gave My Heart to a Pinhead and He Made a Fool Out of Me!

 

New from Fantagraphics, a decade spanning comics anthology from icon maker Bill Griffith. Griffith is surely best known as the creator of the polka-dot robe wearing daily strip character, Zippy the Pinhead, but Griffith's productivity reaches far beyond Zippy. Lost and Found is a collection of comics, handpicked by the artist, many rare and out of print, from 1969-2003 (but with the first third of that time period, the heyday of the underground, occupying the majority of the book). Though most of the comics in Lost and Found aren't about Zippy, there are some unique and important Zippy moments included, like the icon's first appearance, pictured below ("I Gave My Heart to a Pinhead and He Made a Fool Out of Me!").  For an introduction to Griffith, Zippy, and this collection, check out this article from The Atlantic.
