Don’t they have modern flat-screen TVs in Britain instead of this antique box that Andy and Flo are watching?
Some people thought Guy Gilchrist had strayed far from what Nancy was originally about, but under Jaimes it has been about nothing but basketball, which Nancy never was into before, for weeks now. If no better writer is available for the strip, maybe it’s time to simply retire it.
Bonnie Braids, Tracy’s daughter, is a teacher.
Ziggy is consistently just about the funniest comic around.
Gil and his sports world must be in an alternate universe with different seasons than most normal places. His baseball team finished its season in late July while most finish in early June and now he’s just started his summer job when most high school football teams have already started practice and many of them have their first game just 11 days away.
This is the first time this comic strip has actually made me laugh since Ms. Jaimes took over.
Yes, the art work is bad. i know some people said they didn’t like Guy Gilchrist’s modern, sexy looking Aunt Fritzi, but now she looks and dresses like someone straight out of the 1940s. And there is little detail in the people or the backgrounds. Why Ms. Jaimes was chosen to continue this strip is beyond me.
Why didn’t Slim go to his brother-in-law, Chipper, who treats everyone else in Gasoline Alley?
I liked Guy Gilchrist’s Aunt Fritzi better. Olivia Jaimes has a long way to go to become as talented an artist as Gilchrist was.
I don’t see this as being anything close to what Bushmiller – or Gilchrist – would have written, or anything close to funny. I think the new artist/writer is terrible at both. And Nancy and Sluggo continue to have the yellowish green skin that makes them appear to have a severe case of jaundice. The syndicate made a bad choice for the new artist/writer and will have to rectify that soon or this comic strip will go down the tubes.
