A Kinder, Simpler Time Dept.: Your Comics

Aug. 9, 1957, Nancy  

Ernie Bushmiller's "Nancy," Aug. 9, 1957. Notice how often Sluggo is shown reading. I never realized he was such a literate chap. Bushmiller never explains why Nancy needs a pitchfork.

Loving the Nancy's! I was obsessed with this strip in college...they are truly existential and Dali-esque. Some of them make absolutely no sense at all, which of course, are the best ones! Keep 'em coming!
