Booklist Review

As the third Zippy annual opens, Griffy (Griffith's alter ego and Zippy the Pinhead's number-one pal) has decided Zippy's worship of oversize roadside icons and weird snacks must stop. There's more to life, much more, he says, as he leads Zippy to . . . Coney Island. Life is about people, Zippy, in all their wretched splendor, not fiberglass hot dogs! Griffy has forgotten, however, the giant Sof-serv cone atop a Boardwalk snack stand, the giant bug head at the front of a roller coaster, and the giant face of George C. Tilyou, Coney's first great entrepreneur. Zippy admires Coney, but his coast-to-coast joyride (Jackerouac is a stern taskmaster ) in search of big stuff and barely digestible sustenance cannot be curtailed. Whew, say all devotees of the ongoing critique of America's love affair with publicity that is Griffith's great strip. How great? Well, what other strips ask, Are you really th' \lquote Missing Link'? And if so, where does that leaveeanu Reeves? --Ray Olson Copyright 2004 Booklist
