Editorial Reviews


“Prefaced by Griffith’s long, anecdotal accounting of his work and including stories featuring other characters who’d eventually join the strip’s cast as well as 48 pages in full color..., this collection attests the perdurable wit, style, and smarts of one of the greatest of the 1960s San Francisco underground cartoonists. [Starred Review]” (Ray Olson - Booklist)

“While other colleagues[']. . .graphic novels draw serious attention in literary circles, Griffith remains the 'Are we having fun yet?' guy to many.. . Lost and Found: Comics 1969­-2003 [might] change that. . . Lost and Found shows off more facets of Griffith, putting his obsessions with Hollywood, suburbia, and a certain type of corporate cockiness into a larger context.” (Noel Murray - The A.V. Club)

Lost and Found is a milestone book...” (Steven Heller - The Atlantic)

Lost and Found... testifies to Griffith’s heroic output of underground comics, and his commitment to a lifetime of making work that is challenging, inventive, and beautifully drawn. His signature narrative discombobulation and linguistic elasticity unite all these disparate pieces into a cohesive statement of surprise and protest...” (Matthew Thurber & Rebecca Bird - The Comics Journal)

“Bill Griffith, the one prominent figure of underground comix to reach the daily comic page mainstream, has delivered again . . . Day by day,week by week, year by year, Zippy reveals the oddness of post-­modernity . . . Not even Griffophiles (or is it Zippophiles?) like this reviewer knew most of the details offered here...” (Paul Buhle - The Jewish Daily Forward)

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Gary Gackstatter on February 8, 2012
Bill Griffith is without a doubt the finest artist working a daily strip today. Just from an 'art' standpoint, his work is an inspiration; his attention to detail, perspective, proportion are consistently at the highest level possible. Combine that with his deep understanding of the history of our culture, and you get one of the most important cartoons EVER.
This book is a must. It is a monument to one of the greatest minds to ever pick up a pen.
