And some sections ofNewark). Reader response to this new Dingburg "story thread" has been loud andapproving, with many asking for directions to the fabled enclave, somewhere "17miles west of Baltimore". Detailed maps will be provided on the new book'sendpapers.Also in this issue: the revealing "Little Zippy" series, in whichZippy's magical and very weird childhood is laid bare. And, finally, Zippy andJ. Edgar Hoover (remember him?) cavort in tutus and play with loaded guns.Welcome to Dingburg! According to People magazine, "Philosophically,Zippy's like and evolutionarily perfect combination of Wittgenstein, MarshallMcLuhan and Alfred E. Newman."
