Overview

A striking, giftable package to celebrate the 40th anniversary of one of America's best-loved, classic cartoons.

As enduring as he is endearing, Tom Wilson's Ziggy celebrates four decades of bringing the funny to the funny pages inside Ziggy. This lavish hardcover collection features the best Ziggy panels spanning 1971-2011.

Heralded by the New York Times as a "lovable, optimistic, funny-page favorite," Wilson's short, bald, barefoot, and pantless Everyman focuses on rainbows and silver linings rather than dwell on the clouds in the sky. With amusing and poignant reflections such as "Just when you find the key to success, somebody changes the lock" and "Patience is a virtue that carries a lot of wait," Ziggy offers hope in the face of adversity to more than 75 million devoted fans.

Ziggy appears around the globe inside newspapers, greeting card envelopes, on T-shirts and calendars, and is frequently referenced in popular culture on shows ranging from Seinfeld and The Simpsons to 30 Rock and Jeopardy! As other strips come and go, Ziggy endures by staying relevant and adapting with the times in his own gently ruffled kind of way. Whether he's trying to figure out how to Facebook or file a complaint, inside a single panel, Ziggy comments on current events and technology, along with friendship and faith—all the while reminding us that we can't have life's rainbows without a little rain.

Meet the Author

Tom Wilson

Tom Wilson began drawing Ziggy in 1987. The cartoonist's lifestyle came very naturally to Tom, whose father created the cartoon and whose family includes many artists. 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.
