Shelves With Things on Them

Ziggy is often unfairly criticized. Well, perhaps not unfairly, but disproportionately so. At its best its a surrealist, absurd-yet-optimistic little strip with pleasant little non sequiturs and occasional bouts of madness. You'll enjoy it in much the same way you enjoy Rose is Rose, though the world of Ziggy is usually scads bleaker.

This is the sort of strip which makes you smile a little inside and think: "I went to a bookstore yesterday. It wasn't very silly." Or not. (Hey, I can't pump out nihilism every day.)
