Okay, Olivia and Shena, after this many speaking appearances, it’s about time for us to finally be let in on what this character’s name is. I don’t know why, but he looks like a “Jeffrey” to me.
Unlike (I’m guessing) the “five-letter” vs. five-word deal, it’s actually intentional, not an incomplete upload —letterboxing for a theatrical effect, like the 01/08/2020 strip it’s copied from (and also 01/07/2020 before that).
Followed the “please” request to a T. Good “no butt” joke.
Change the em dash before vintage to 2 hyphens. GoComics ridiculousness broke the formatting.
Sylvia had her moments, but she’s been gone less than a decade.
Unwisely jumping in: Time’s about up for guesses, right? Please don’t leave us hanging about what this former wise person strip was, if such really existed.
From The Comics Journal, “The Best Comics of 2019”:
“Nancy: A Comics Collection by Olivia Jaimes (Andrews McMeel). Every decade or so, someone comes along who allegedly makes the newspaper comics page ‘worth reading again’ or some such claptrap. It’s pretty unexpected to have it be someone like the mysterious and pseudonymous Olivia Jaimes, and even more unexpected to be via the process of breathing hilarious, shocking, and meta-comical new life into a strip as ancient and established as Nancy. But Jaimes and her delightful new Nancy live up to the hype; I can’t remember the last time a strip delivered at such high percentages and made me actually look forward to getting the paper every day (or, you know, its online equivalent, I don’t live in a goddamn cave). This may not seem in keeping with my focus on political works, but in a way, this Nancy – tech-savvy, permanently online, simultaneously self-aggrandizing and self-hating, and obsessed with her own image in social media – is only a reflection of Weird Left Twitter and the Discourse writ large.”
Incompetence is GC’s most distinguishing feature.
Thanks, I missed Fritzi in the last panel. Poochie is the best.
