To describe or explain Nancy is futile. Part of its appeal is that it won't work as well or in the same way in a different medium. As many have remarked, it is the quintessential comic. If you've never read it, then you may not "get" it at first. It may seem cheesy or too obvious. But stick with it. Eventually Bushmiller will infect you with his unique physics and the charm of the characters. I tend to prefer lengthier comics to the short form of the comic strip, but it works perfectly for Nancy.
This volume collects all the daily strips from 1943-1945 (3 years). When it arrived I was very happy with the book design, the durability of the cover, and the high quality pages. It's a beautiful brick of a book. There are usually three strips on each page, but now and then we get a single strip enlarged and covering an entire page -- a nice touch that allows me to appreciate the art even more.
I see that another reviewer critiqued the two introductions. I didn't have any problems with them. They're only four pages so I don't see what the big deal is. They seem aimed at the general reader who doesn't really know Nancy, and if it makes the book more accessible then I'm all for it. I'm just really glad that this project got off the ground and will hopefully continue.Read more ›
the real nancy lovers should search out the five kitchen sink books and, especially, the henry holt book entitled the best of ernie bushmiller's nancy. this book even tells you sluggo's last name.
Anybody can be a fan of Nancy if they just read a few. I think children would really enjoy this book and the other Nancy collections, there isn't much stuff like this out there for kids these days.

sorry I bought this. The strip is as lame as it ever was and kind of gives me the creeps.Published 6 months ago by NINA
Nancy is way too funny. There's a couple semi-racist panels that were drawn during WWII, but other than that, Nancy is perfect.Published 18 months ago by Steven Barman

Fun book, not sure if all the hype about Bushmiller is right on. Its goog corny 1940's gags with great art wok. I will probably get the rest in the series. You should too.Published on July 21, 2014 by armenious
I find no fault with the way this volume has been put together, in any way. As always, beautifully designed by Fantagraphics.Published on July 9, 2014 by J. A. T.
