Aug. 8, 1956, Nancy

Ernie Bushmiller's "Nancy," Aug. 8, 1956. I usually don't spend much time thinking about the age of Nancy and Sluggo. They're cartoon characters, after all, and Bushmiller cartoon characters at that. They're sort of ageless, like the kids in "Peanuts." I generally figure they're somewhere in late elementary school or maybe junior high. Then a strip like this comes along and I'm not sure.

Ever notice how much time Sluggo spends reading in "Nancy?"
