Ziggy : A Rumor in His Own Time by Tom Wilson, Jim Wilson
"One of the greatest comics in syndication." Philadelphia Inquirer
"For all his bumbling and confusion, Ziggy is one of the world's most best-loved heroes." Reporter News, Abilene, Texas
He's allergic to four-leaf clovers, his computer dating service accidentally matched him with a Muppet, and he sees people on the street bearing signs like "Wonders cease today!" Ziggy is the squatty little hero who has made readers laugh for decades, winning everyone's compassion but little else.
In Ziggy... A Rumor in His Own Time, Ziggy's infectious optimism assures us that we are not alone in the seemingly endless frustrations of our daily lives.
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.
