`MALLARD,' `ZIPPY' ON THE BALLOT.

When it comes to the comics in L.A. Life, your vote counts. And now we want it to count again - this time on the fate of ``Zippy'' and ``Mallard Fillmore,'' two of our more hotly debated strips.

Many of you don't like ``Zippy.'' Some say the print is too small, others just don't relate to the ``Zippy'' zeitgeist.

But L.A. Life believes in giving the ol' pinhead one last chance. To that end, ``Zippy'' is history in L.A. Life unless a groundswell of support comes to defend Zerbina, Griffy and Zippy himself. ``Zippy'' fans and foes - now is your chance to be heard.

Moving on ... is ``Mallard Fillmore,'' that right-leaning duck, too political for L.A. Life? Should he stay where he is, or be yanked from the section and sent to the Opinion pages ... or just yanked altogether? Remember - party affiliation doesn't matter ... or does it?

In other comics' news, ``Flight Deck,'' one of the comics readers voted on most recently, will be landing in L.A. Life Sept. 6. Also being added is a new comic strip ``Get Fuzzy,'' a wry portrait of single life with pets.

To vote for or against ``Zippy'' and ``Mallard Fillmore,'' send an e-mail to dnlalalifeaol.com, fax at (818) 713-3545, or mail to L.A. Life Comics, P.O. Box 4200, Woodland Hills, Calif., 91365-4200. Please respond no later than Tuesday.
