Overview

Ziggy, America's loveable everyman, has become not just a classic but an iconic figure over the last 30 years. His gift cards have sold millions, and his comic is seen in more than 600 newspapers. All the latest color daily panels will be featured in this collection.

He's never had hair. Never owned shoes. Never even sported a pair of pants. No one would blame you for thinking that lovable everyperson Ziggy is broke. But there is one thing Ziggy does have—heart. And plenty of it, as cartoonist Tom Wilson reminds us in Ziggy Goes for Broke, a charming full-color collection of daily Ziggy comic strips.

In Ziggy Goes for Broke, the lovable Ziggy is back to take on our sometimes-indifferent world. As always, Ziggy is armed only with warm feelings, good intentions, and a homespun philosophy that reminds us that we're all in this together.

Ziggy Goes for Broke is a must-have for long-time fans and the perfect introduction for anyone new to the wonderful world of Ziggy.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up—Ziggy brings to life both the simplicities and complexities of daily life. His struggles with lost luggage, insurance, finances, dating, and customer service are sure to hit home with many adults. Teens will find humor in his interactions with his pets and the pigeons in the park. Ziggy's experiences can evoke a contemplative mood or an inspiring and uplifting change of heart. The humor in the one-liners goes hand-in-hand with Wilson's simple yet effective rendering of the little bald man who rarely wears pants. A daily dose of Ziggy is good for the heart, mind, and soul.—Carol Hirsche, Provo City Library, UT

Tom Wilson

Tom studied graphic design at Miami University and fine art and illustration at Boston University. Although he is no longer involved in the day-to-day drawing of Ziggy, he continues to have an ongoing passion for creative development as president of Ziggy and Friends, Inc.
