Summit Diner redux

[Zippy. March 13, 2015; January 1, 2016.]

Yes, 2016 doesn’t feel different from 2015, though the motel and street are differently colored. I would imagine that many artists reuse their work now and then (if not often). But this past Friday’s strip is the first Zippy in which I’ve spotted old art. I doubt I’d have noticed if I hadn’t made a post about the March 13 strip.

When I checked the Zippy archive, I realized that not just these panels but the two strips themselves are, save for their dialogue, identical. Same balloons, different words. Yes, 2016 doesn’t feel very different from 2015. Very meta, Bill Griffith!
