The Kansas City Public Library celebrates the 40th birthday of Ziggy with an appearance by Tom Wilson, who has been drawing the iconic cartoon since 1987. Wilson will discuss the release of a new book commemorating the 40th anniversary of the comic strip.

Tom Wilson Sr. created Ziggy in 1971.

“In spite of his small stature, readers have told me that Ziggy has helped them see the larger picture of problems they are dealing with in their lives,” Wilson says. “I see Ziggy evolving and changing with the times while remaining the same character he’s always been.”
