    Thanks for taking a comic I grew up with and making it relevant. Your team made reading this old girl fun again. Best wishes for a great future.

    Where are Rollo and Erma and all the rest of the gang? “Wouldn’t it be nice” if we could see them again, one more time.

    But best wishes, Guy. I guess it’s all over now.

    Definitely going to miss this, Guy, but tell me- is that you performing the ceremony? Are you an ordained minister?

    Seriously, though, whatcha going to be up to?

    First comic I learned to read, after years of looking at the pictures, was Nancy. Then Peanuts. Long long ago.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if Nancy started all over from the beginning? From where Fritzi started and then Nancy showed up? We’d all like to see that.

    As a little girl I stayed with my great aunts and uncle on weekends. My uncle had to get up early with my uncle so he’d read the paper and give me the funny pages. That’s when my love of Nancy began. That was in the 50’s. Thanks for bringing it all back for me and letting us all say good-bye.

    Nice wedding gown on Fritzi, by the way. Also, nice music choice; me, I would have saved it for the bride and groom’s first dance at the reception, but I guess things were pressed for time. (With the Captain and Tennille’s The Way I Want to Touch You thrown in for good measure.) And so, the Gilchrist Era moves to the Nancy Classics page (along with all the drooling Fritzi v.2.0 fans awaiting her reappearance). As I previously said, thank you for making faith a pillar of the strip, instead of a punchline or a punching bag. Well done, and Godspeed in your next project!

    Speaking of music, I’m surprised Three Rocks doesn’t seem to have a bagpiper in town. The Wedding Song (There is Love) works very nicely on the pipes, and would have made a good entrance for the bride at the ceremony.

    The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It’s a choice you make – not just on your wedding day, but over and over again – and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife. Barbara De Angelis

    Weddings are important because they celebrate life and possibility. Anne Hathaway

    A wedding, a great wedding, is just a blast. A celebration of romance and community and love… What is unfun about that? Nothing. Ariel Levy

    The most dangerous food is wedding cake. James Thurber

    I was married by a judge. I should have asked for a jury. Groucho Marx

    Our whole wedding cost 180 bucks. Afterward, we re-heated lasagna for everyone and set off fireworks. Larry the Cable Guy

    All weddings, except those with shotguns in evidence, are wonderful. Liz Smith

    No jealousy their dawn of love overcast, nor blasted were their wedded days with strife; each season looked delightful as it past, to the fond husband and the faithful wife. James Beattie

    I agree. A lovely way to end the strip. But it’s hard to see it go. I’m 75 and have seen the strip all my life. Another great one gone. It’s true that some of the newer strips are as good as the old ones, but generally I don’t think they are funny, don’t understand them or both. Thanks Mr. G.

    I will really miss this ray of sunshine in my day. I grew up with Nancy, & just rediscovered her a few months ago. I do hope that there will be a Nancy classics. Sigh. Beautiful ending, though. Saw the Beach Boys in concert many times during my high school years of 70-74 in Southern California. Lots of great memories flooding back with today’s strip. Sigh.

    I’ll add my thanks, Guy. “Nancy” has always been such a positive, feel-good comic, and I’m sorry to see it end. The finale is kind of hitting me hard, too, now that it’s here. I respect your wishes regarding the strip, though, and wish you all the best in the future. Come back and see us.

    I, too, would love to see a reboot of the strip from the beginning. I suspect we may have to wait a few days or a week, but it’d be nice.

    Long live “Nancy” …

    I’ve been reading Nancy for about 57 years and have seen comic books back to almost WW2. Out of all the authors, Guy is the best. The strips have more feeling and the drawings are softer. Sluggo has more of a personality. And Fritzi loves all of the oldies that I do! I will miss the most Oona and her loveable strangeness (which I wish Guy had done more of). Farewell, Guy, and many blessings to you on your new endeavors!

    Now Nancy will join Little Iodine, Little Lulu, Dondi, Winthrop, and Priscilla and her Pop —those delightful comic book and comic strip children who brightened many lives. They are gone from our pages but will live forever in our hearts. Goodbye, Nancy.

    I would so much like a continuation of the cat which Sluggo found, the orange one, – forgot his name – who spoke slang…. I loved him so much!!!! Just a new/followup comic only of the adventures of that cat, the rest of the persons would be … environmental/context…. that would be nice.
