Griffith, Bill. Zippy Stories. San Francisco: Last Gasp, Inc., 1995. Print.
Zippy Stories is a surreal comic with a twisted sort of social commentary strip with a heavy satire focus.

Griffith frequently used this strip as a forum to express his views regarding society, consumerism, and everyday life.
