    The white out should satisfy those seeking nostalgia – I don’t think I’ve bought a bottle since the mid 80s, nor had any need to do so.

    I imagine Sluggo’s actions leave Nancy with a silent scream.

    When will we get to see other characters like Rollo and Peewee. I hope her aunt looks like she did in the old Tip Top comic books.

    And royalties to Michael Nesmith’s mom, Bette.

    Ectually, I think Michael Nesmith himself is getting the royalties nowadays… :D

    No matter what Sluggo does, teacher is going to be mad that somebody wrote “MEANWHILE:” on that back wall.

    Gilchrist did not have a patent on nostalgia. In this strip we have a historic reference to Wite Out with an implicit musical reference to the Monkees.

    Sluggo must be practicing his algebra. Is that z-sideway 7?

    I don’t think that I have ever seen white out used like that.

    In other news, I’ve linked it before, but the ever-thoughtful Comic Strip of the Day has devoted much of today’s column to New Nancy, Nancy Classic, and the reactions thereto, in the context of wider moves in comics away from newspapers:

    It should be essential reading for anyone not here for Rule 34 Fritzi.

    Sluggo is supposed to be the sleeper here.

    Evidently they didn’t like my last comment as it never made it to print. Let’s see if they have guts enough to print this one. This new Nancy stinks. They would have been better off starting the whole series of the old Nancy from the beginning.

    As I’ve said before, I like the new artist a lot (and I liked Gilchrist). I wish the adults and new characters were drawn more in the style of the main cast. I’m sure that’ll develop as she settles in to drawing the strip.

    The x-squared on the blackboard obviously means that Nancy and Sluggo are really in an algebra class! LOL

    Careful, O.J. Use of too many oversized props will make this strip look like a camp Batman comic book.

    So if Sluggo can do this to Nancy’s sleep sounds, can he do the same for her speech? Does she think he just never listens? Questions….

    Overall, the best balanced of the strips I’ve seen so far. One assumes the oversized bottle of Wite-Out has been borrowed from the artist…

    This is actually getting pretty good. Even the people who complain about too many modern technology references can’t fault this one…when’s the last time you saw a bottle of white-out?
