With Nobody's Fool, Bill Griffith at long last gives us the real story of the flesh and blood human behind his most famous pen & ink creation, Zippy the Pinhead™. Here in this 248 page hardcover volume, we are given the scoop on the life and times of Schlitzie the Pinhead, the making of Tod Browning's Freaks, the film that immortalized Schlitzie and gave him his widest exposure, and much more, including the story of Griffith's own discovery of this unique figure and how that led to the creation of Zippy.
Griffith is clearly inspired by his subject and is in excellent form here. Readers can look forward to being treated to page after page of great comics. Catch up with Griffith in this recently conducted official TCJ interview with his pal, Mark Newgarden, HERE.
Nobody's Foolis recommended reading for fans of R. Crumb and Kim Deitch, and, of course, to anyone who ever enjoyed Zippy the Pinhead!
