Odds and Sods #4 - ZIPPY!


Inspired by Tod Browning's movie Freaks, Bill Griffiths created America's best-loved pinhead, Zippy, for Real Pulp Comix #1 in March of 1971. The character has gone from strength to strength, becoming a daily strip, syndicated worldwide through King Features. You can check out Zippy merchandise on the Zippy Web Site. Zippy Stories #2 was published in 1977 by Rip Off Press and featured the brilliant "Nation of Pinheads", which included this encounter in Central Park.
