Ziggy encounters annoyances and troubles in life, but accepts them with good grace, works through them, and gives us a smile while doing it.

Donald Anderson

I'm in! Wife and i love Ziggy....................


I love Ziggy because though a bummer he isnt crying and thats just what peple adorw


I enjoy reading Ziggy. He falls on tough times, like we all do at one point or another, and like others have said, he experiences the same feelings we do on occasion. I think the Ziggy series should be made into a movie or TV series.

Arlene Gittleson

i adore this 'love-able loser'..and would adore Winning his comic.

Ziggy has always been the reason to enjoy was little or lot we have in life, and a better reason to want to get up & read the paper in the morning.Thank you so much,Ziggy.You're the best thing in life to make us all happy! Endtown Fan #77

Michelle Justiniano

Ziggy is just so realistic! Each cartoon describes a little bit about today's world in such a way that is understandable and true! Ziggy is a great strip!

Ziggy's OK but Wally's my top
And that mouse girl makes his heart pop
They've stolen away
in a ship that's so gay
the Topsiders plan to stop

R D Barr

Ziggy is us and we are him. He's 41? Seems he's been part of my life for longer than that.

David Jones - Creator of Charmy's Army

I love Ziggy because as a young kid of 5 years old who loved cartooning and I knew even then that this was my calling, Ziggy was the one strip that I could read. Ziggy has remained a great influence on my cartooning to this very day and I feel he has withstood the tests of time.

Jonnie (JB)

I love Ziggy because he is easy to relate to. He exoeriences the same feelings we all have from time to time

Noreen Klose

I love Ziggy. I really like his pets, and their interaction. Ziggy is everyone, "Mr. Average Joe". You can really "get" his troubles, and his POV.

Endtown fan #100,

What I like best about Ziggy is the drawing. Very distinctive (and still very seventies!)

Endtown Fan #1

While Ziggy has lousy luck, he also has the ability to see past most of what everyone else accepts as normal. I like Ziggy because he's NOT everyman.

Mike Livote

I love the big, loveable loser....who dosen't get any slack from anyone, pet or human alike! Happy B'Day, Ziggy!!!

Patrycia Pfaff

A dear friend of mine is Ziggy's number 1 fan. She has Ziggy's everywhere, she is 43 and has lived a hard life, she had physical problems growing up an was horribly teased and bullied, but she is the sweetest, kindest person I have ever met she is also very intelligent. Throughout her life sometimes Ziggy was her only comfort, like Ziggy, she was a misfit and to this day she keeps her Ziggys close by. I would love to win these books for her because I know it would be the greatest thing ever for her. Patrycia


Ziggy is my hero! He is so philosophical and every strip has a message! I used to have several of his strips posted on the wall next to my desk - like the one about being a guy who learns from his mistakes...after all there are plenty of other mistakes out there waiting to be made! LOVE HIM!


Love Ziggy. The comics were simple but filled with wisdom. I was devastated when my local tabloid paper stopped carrying him.

Good post man, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using.

Mark Shoenfelt

Ziggy doesn't need to invent storylines to be funny. It is just about life.

Sohum Sanghvi

Ziggy is awesome! He leads a very interesting and fun life, and he is one of the best comic characters ever! Every time I read comics in the newspaper, I always read the Ziggy comics first. It is truly amazing how in just one small comic strip box, Ziggy is able to create a lot of humor. Happy Birthday Ziggy!

Donna Grant-Walker

I love Ziggy no matter how bad a day I may have he brings a smile to my face. He gets me plus we're the same age!

James O'Brien

I can relate to what he goes through. Also, Tom Wilson lived in Cincinanti, and he would throw in some local references. They were funny without knowing the context, but they were funnier when you did know the context.

Mike Bird

Ziggy makes you think about your own LIFE, appreciate what you have now, and what you had. He is a lot like the Pillsbury DoughBoy and Charlie Brown. Where you just want to hug him and say THANK YOU!He just RANKS up there with BEST of the BEST !!


Happy 41 years old, Ziggy! I adore you because you keep on truckin'!


I love him because he is me. Also, his is the Original "Forever Alone" guy. :-\

Ron Plumb

I LOVE Ziggy. His life seems sooo much like mine tha I never feel alone in this world.


some days I feel like ziggy and I shared a day and it makes me feel a whole lot better.

Julie Sulfsted

I love Ziggy because there is a little bit of him in all of us.



Shelly Robbins

Ziggy is one of the first comic strips I remember reading as a small child. So Ziggy brings me back to my childhood and some happy memories!

chris christmas

love the guy

Steven Fields

My introduction to Ziggy was on a "shopping trip" with my great-grandmother. We went into a thrift store and my attention fell on a little hand-held Ziggy doll. I hugged it and felt so connected with its energy. When I asked my Momma (my great-grandmother) if I could have it, she smiled and bought it for me. I carried it everywhere and because of that I eventually lost it. Every time I see the name "Ziggy" or his picture, I think of my long-lost doll and have emotional experiences because Momma transitioned into eternity in 2004. What I know of Love, I learned from Momma and I wish I still had my Ziggy doll to feel that connection all over again.


I love him because he's so undeterred. Stumbles along in life, no matter how many setbacks. He's so sweet, really... :-)
