Nancy Likes Christmas: Complete Dailies 1946-1948 (Ernie Bushmiller's Nancy) by Ernie Bushmiller



by Ernie Bushmiller, Bill Griffith (Introduction). Published December 7th 2012 by Fantagraphics (first published November 21st 2012). Physical Description.

It’s so easy to select random Nancy comics that dazzle with their algebraic puzzle structures and wordplay that we tend to see it as a disconnected tide of surreal gags and look no closer. But given the chance to see how Ernie Bushmiller builds and plays around with an idea over several days, exploring permutations and wringing every possible twist he can from a premise, what we discover is much more impressive. Bill Griffith, creator of Zippy the Pinhead, introduces this volume with some analysis of Ernie Bushmiller’s singular genius for manipulating structure and symbolism: Try to imagine Nancy as an animated TV show or a live action movie.

Three more full years of Ernie Bushmiller's beloved comic strip, featuring over one thousand meticulously restored daily strips from its post-World-War II graphic high point. Ernie Bushmiller Things From Another World.

Nancy is an American comic strip, originally written and drawn by Ernie Bushmiller and distributed by United Feature Syndicate. The character of Nancy, a precocious eight-year-old, first appeared in the strip Fritzi Ritz about the airheaded flapper title character. Larry Whittington began Fritzi Ritz in 1922, and it was assumed by Bushmiller three years later. On January 2, 1933, Bushmiller introduced Fritzi's niece, Nancy.

Title : Nancy is Happy: The Complete Dailies 1942-1945 (Ernie Bushmiller's Nancy). Authors : Bushmiller, Ernie. Pages are clean and easy to read. Comics on parade 1946-NANCY fritzi ritz-bushmiller g/vg.

It's three more full years of Ernie Bushmiller's beloved comic strip, featuring over one thousand meticulously restored daily strips from its post-World-War II graphic high point, superbly crafted, but not yet quite stylized into the almost machine-life sleekness of later decades. And what can you say about the jokes in Nancy Likes Christmas other than that, contrary to its reputation for a zen-like, ultra-square oddness, many of them are actually just extremely funny?

I never really read Nancy growing up in the 1960s and '70s; i came to this through recommendations from Bill Griffith of Zippy the Pinhead fame (he also wrote the foreword) and Peteykins of Princess Sparkle Pony (google it; it's a must-read blog).

Ernie Bushmiller's illustration techniques are absolutely fantastic - his use of light / dark, line thickness, perspective, and of course the gag setups are absolutely astonishing at times. Sure, it seems a bit anachronistic, but if you're interested in commercial illustration - which I am, more than "comic" art (I'm not a comic book reader); you'll find this volume extremely interesting and a great addition to your collection.

Fantagraphics printed the book on nice paper with good quality; it oddly features no front material, other than the foreword - and only a small afterword at the back. Weird, but cool.

It's very well done, but too big, so I returned it.

From a quality standpoint, these volumes of Nancy comics by fantagraphics get full marks. Physically the books have nice covers with a good feel, the pages are of high quality, and the each comic is a great scan.

The amount of laughter this book will bring you if you buy it is worth any price.

I can't add anything really to what I said about Nacy is Happy, other than this too is a Zen delight. you get lost in the world Bushmiller created. Sluggo and the gang, no frills simple enjoyment. I can't remember who referred to the Nancy strips as ZEN, but they have my vote.

Nancy has always been one of my favorite comics and I'm not old enough to remember its' beginnings. These volumes are a great opportunity to see how the comic evolved. I am looking forward to more of them.

Item arrived in condition as advertised.
This book is great, the layout is similar to volume one, which is excellent. The comic strips are in black and white. Here's hoping they continue to release new volumes in the future, maybe in color, that would be sweet. Thank you FANTAGRAPHICS!
