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…

Wayne did a Reddit IAmA and took requests for drawings. Here are some of them!

That drawing in the bottom left is of my son Owen!

If you don’t know Wayne White’s work, you must go see the documentary about him, Beauty is Embarrassing!
