Though the mantle of Nancy has been passed down over the years, Ernie Bushmiller created Nancy and drew her for decades. Though I enjoy this new collection of classic Nancy moments, I think it’s a shame that Bushmiller’s genius isn’t given credit here. First, it’s the right thing to do. In this age of “reblogging,” a lot of today’s artists are already getting ripped off by seeing their work reproduced without credit—why reinforce and legitimize that trend here? Second, knowing Bushmiller’s name would allow new Nancy fans to look into Nancy’s history; Fantagraphics has several volumes of classic Nancy strips out already, with a new one coming in the fall. Giving credit to the pre-Gilchrist Nancy artists would help new fans discover more and enjoy more Nancy.
