Christopher Luna receives a tip of the pin from Bill Griffith, creator of Zippy the Pinhead

Reading through my Zippy annuals, I just realized that Bill Griffith had used a photograph I sent him when I was living in Kelso, WA as the basis for a Zippy the Pinhead strip in 2003. The first panel depicts a movie theatre and diner in Kelso and, as regular readers of the strip know, Zippy and Griffy love diners.
Bill Griffith's strip is consistently funny, perplexing, subversive, and thought-provoking. It is amazing that something this surreal and intellectually challenging appears in newspapers across the country. I love it.
Strip posted with Bill Griffith's permission.
