    I’ll take a good book over the “boob tube” any day… just don’t take away my mp3 player!

    This review is a bit of a hash, but I thought the brief comparison to Walt Kelly/Pogo was interesting.

    Interesting, I agree. Wish I could give a little more time to it. My own feeling is that Kelly & Griffith are more different than alike, coming at things aesthetically from two different sides of a pretty stark generational line, even if their social/political points of view are similar. But it would be fun to explore further. A long, long time since I’ve read any Pogo, I’m sorry to say.

    Have to admit that Griffith’s recent Dingburg strips & vaguely autobiographical matter are less appealing for me than stuff he was going strong with five years ago or so. I love the painstaking evocation of specific (though rarely named) places & things and the alien monologue/dialogue twisted around them — which are less prominent in the recent stuff.

    I’m afraid I have no interest in this Zippy musical Griffith’s been promoting in the last few months. He was interviewed on Dan Rodricks’ radio show here a couple of weeks ago, but I haven’t gotten around to listening.

I'm listening ...
