    Don’t believe I’ve ever seen anyone butter anything by holding the stick of butter. Especially without the wrapper.

    Anyway, give the new artist a chance before being critical. It takes a while to get into the swing of things.

    Yeah, I’m with Rankin. This is only the first day. Let’s give it a chance. It’s hard to get used to something new sometimes. I’m hoping it’s that shock, rather than how bad it seems to be. And I sure hope that’s not the new Fritzi!

    I have followed Nancy for several years and t is refreshing to see a return to its original style and humor. Gilchrist took the strip in the wrong direction too far and for too long.

    A triumph! A tip of the hat to Bushmiller and a fare thee well please don’t come back to Guy Gilchrist who promoted himself as much as he wrote the comic. I am getting a kick out of all the naysayers who can make ultimate judgments on a comic based on a single release. And for the buffoon who said this doesn’t look like Nancy may I say, “I am delighted that I am not you, for I should not like to be such a buffoon.”

    The Gilchrists did a wonderful beautiful loving job with Nancy and weren’t afraid to be politically incorrect and offend the enlightened and progressive bigots by putting a bit of religion and drawing a beautiful woman in Fritzi who was shown to be more beautiful on the inside than the outside

    Hm…new creator, huh? Can’t say I care for the art style, but I’ll wait to see what the writing turns out like. Jerry Scott made the strip funny for the first time since I started reading it, and I was really disappointed to see Guy and Brad Gilchrist take over. After a while, though, I grew to appreciate their sweet, gentle approach.

    Having been the new artist on an established strip myself, I experienced the ‘quick to judge and judge harshly’ syndrome. It’s not fun being under attack from know-it-alls. Let the new version run awhile. Editors do not judge based on one single strip, and neither should the readers.

    I have been reading “Nancy” since the early 60s. Didn’t care for the Jerry Scott style, thought Gilchrist did a good job that Ernie Bushmiller would have been happy with. This new artist will take some getting used to, but I agree that we should give her a chance.

    Having said that, I do hope that the woman in today’s strip is Nancy’s teacher or some other adult, not Aunt Fritzi.

    I’ll give Jaime a chance – hard to base anything on one strip, but, boy, it sure doesn’t look promising from the first one. I sure hope that’s not Jaime’s version of Fritzi Ritz… With all the talented people out there, couldn’t they find someone who could draw like Bushmiller and carry on his vision? At least she isn’t Gilchrist – blech…

    Given that the new artist needs a certain number of strips (I believe the requirement is 20) on the spike before going to print, I will give Ms Jaimes a couple weeks to hit her stride. But I will say I do not care for her style on her premiere. Lack of perspective, background, and other details make the person in the foreground look like a graffiti sketch, and the constantly increasing number of mysteriously appearing items on Nancy’s table is distracting to say the least.

    There seems to be some confusion regarding the woman in today’s strip. She is clearly NOT Aunt Fritzi and I suspect when Aunt Fritzi does appear she will look striking similar to the original created by EB. I also suspect she will not look anything like the Dog Patch resident appropriated by Gilchrist. This is definitely a turn for the better.

    Well, this is a shock! What happened to the beautiful artwork? Is this a spoof? Why the emphasis on salt & butter? Is this somebody new drawing the series? There is no beautiful background, detail or perspective in today’s strip. Why is Nancy sitting so far back? What is with the odd skin tones and basic line drawing? Who is the adult? If this is somebody new drawing the strip, are we going to get the old Nancy reruns to choose? Not a good first impression if somebody new is doing the strip.

    Okay, I am in agreement of those who say, “Give it a chance”. Yes, the artwork is different, that is fine, of course it is going to take a little getting used too. That is always the way with change. With the comics shrinking in today’s paper, simplicity is key. I will admit, I did not find today’s comic funny, even a little strange, but hey, it’s the first day. I am hoping that there are better written stories to come. If the stories are better than this, it will trump over any drawing style. I say welcome, Olivia, hoping this works out.

    I’m sorry, since this is the first strip, I would hope it would be the best, or really good at least.

    The art is bizarre, with yellow skin tones (which I noted in the samples) the joke is something unintelligible about Nancy being a glutton, and the comments are frequently rude and political. This strip drew 10-15 times the comments the old one did, mostly unknown.

    So I think I’ll save the few minutes I used to take to read and comment here, and leave you all to insult me. Have a nice day.

    Maybe I’m dense, but I need an explanation about what is so funny about some off-panel cornbread.

    But I will keep following the comic. As many have said, “Give her a chance.”

    While this “first strip” has plenty of comments,it is important for me to add another voice here while many re-visit Nancy. Long ongoing franchises change at some time.In recent years:The Tonight Show went from Carson to Leno I to Conan to Leno II to Lorne Michaels,The Daily Show went from Jon Stewart to Trevor Noah,CBS’ later talk show went from Craig Ferguson to James Corden. It is a long time practice in the funnies-Little Orphan Annie,Dick Tracy,there were even attempts to resurrect Pogo. One thing all of these have in common is that the audience expects a daily dose of something. It takes a while for the audience warms up to the new thing. A while? Might be a couple of years. We have three Nancy strips to go on. Though under a pseudonym,we are led to believe that there is a female behind the New Nancy. First time this famous comic-strip little girl thoughts are coming from someone who was indeed a little girl. As a Grandpa trying to get the next generation to appreciate the “daily comic”,at least I’m getting some help here from someone trying to reach out to these kids. Please,give this adequate time. Finding Nancy’s New Voice could be rewarding for folks who may be around in 2100. I won’t be around,but hope the idea of the “daily comic” in one’s life stays around.
