Nancy Is Happy: Complete Dailies 1943-1945

I don’t know if I was depressed or what, but there was a week or so where all I could bring myself to read is Nancy comics.

Being completely new to the strip, I was surprised by how much I laughed and how downright wacky and borderline avant-garde some of the jokes were (witness Nancy making de-signs). If you’ve never read the strip, I highly recommend this collection (gorgeous design) and the classic essay, “How To Read Nancy.”

Bonus: my son Owen bears an uncanny resemblance to one of the characters…
