Some people don’t like the new Nancy strips.

Those people are incorrect.


A tip o’Sluggo’s cap to J. Caleb for singling out this amazing panel.

    You are 100% correct. I haven’t enjoyed a newspaper comic strip this much since I was 13.

    This one made me laugh out loud:

  • Turan, Emissary of the Fly World says:

    I wonder what the rationale for Sluggo’s name is these days. His original characterization was “tough kid from the wrong part of town,” so I presume the name meant that he was prone to slugging people. That would probably not be accepted for a child in a comic strip now, and anyway it no longer fits the way he is presented.

    So…He frequently defrauds vending machines with slugs? He’s slow as a slug? He leaves a trail of mucous behind him? Any ideas?

  • Turan, Emissary of the Fly World says:

    Maybe the course to take is to change his last name. Let it no longer be Smith, but rather Sluggington or Slugworthy or something like that, with “Sluggo” being a nickname derived therefrom.

    Yes, Jasper Portarlington Slugworthy. That is what I shall assume his full name to be, from here on.

    The new “Nancy” is the “Frank Miller’s ‘Spirit'” of comic strips.

    I just spent 20 minutes going through some of those newer strips. Great, dry sense of humor. Charming minimalist art with a lot of subtlety. The comments, though. Geez. Can’t please some people.

    Wait…there’s new Nancy comic strips? I’m so out of touch. That’s fantastic!
