Everyone's favorite wise guy with the conical pate is back! Zippy Annual 2003 collects approximately a year's worth of strips, including full-color Sundays, and spotlights Zippy's ongoing love affair with "Brand X" America in all its faded roadside glory. Travel to the "Neon Boneyard," P.T. Barnum's sideshow, Japan, Levittown, and the early 1900s. Most notably, there's a gaggle of politically incorrect strips featuring Zippy & Griffy's take on the Iraq War, including several satirical potshots at New World Order strategists Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz. Are we having a searchable database yet? Includes an informative "Pindex" of comments and notations from behind the scenes at Zippy Central.

"Zippy Annual 2003 offers the most concentrated dose yet of Griffith's ruminations on how marketing has become both an American religion and one of our most reliable sources of art..." – The Onion
