    Oh, you know Sluggo named names.

    I see that the compilation’s from 88, Mike, but do you have any idea when this was first printed?

  • pell says:

    Yes, I’m curious about that myself. Cool if it was during the 50s and Bushmiller was lampooning what was going on at the time.

  • Adam says:

    why does that guy have three sets of eyebrows

  • rob! says:

    I can’t believe I’m actually offended by something I saw in a Nancy and Sluggo cartoon.

  • MrJM says:

    I bet Sluggo is a ‘birther’ too.

    Yo Todd & Pell: Bushmiller dated that strip ‘Mar 25’ on the first panel and there’s a 1959 (Tm. Reg. U.S. & Pat Off. … etc) date on panel 3.

    Which means we’re actually after the end of the Red Scare era, the Cincinatti Redlegs have already changed their name back. Sluggo is late to the ball as usual; perhaps if he stopped wearing clothes stolen off of a 1930s cartoon burglar, he’d be more accepted as part of the political conversation and thus be part of the times.

    Nancy looks traumatized by the whole thing…it’s one of the formative experiences destined to turn her into comics’ Emma Goldman.

    Seriously though, please keep your hammer and sickle stored in a safe, childproof place.

    power to the people – john lennon

  • Josh says:

    Oh no, Nat: HUAC was still imprisoning uncooperative witnesses for Contempt of Congress in 1959, and there were still many blacklisted entertainers and writers. The end of the Red Scare would be ’60 or ’62.
