I love the way that Lottie and Mildred’s relationship has evolved.
She’s dipping Lottie’s hair in it.
This is HANDS DOWN one of my favorite Lottie moments. Could she have been more polite? Sure, I guess. But the point’s the same.
I had a lisp a long time ago and one of the things I like about Allison’s portrayal of Claire is the way he shows her lisp… including now that she’s an adult and still has one at times.
There’s comic strips that ARE choose your own adventure and they can be really cool! Whether it’s the artist posting limited options or taking the first suggestion someone posts no matter how ludicrous. But those are designed that way. The comics medium is great because it’s so flexible!
But part of why I like “Nancy” is that the cartoonist IS offering “her own unique take,” while also staying true to the fundamental nature of the characters as Bushmill created them. Well, Nancy, Sluggo, and Aunt Fritzi at least. It’s also nice to see supporting characters that aren’t just weird cardboard cutouts or over the top exaggerations. Like Irma who only existed to “steal Sluggo” or that rich kid whose name I forget.
Nancy’s been “full of herself” for about 80 years now.
Can someone clue me in to what he means by using their knives and forks wrong? Are they doing it American style for some reason? Are they cutting up meat with their elbows sticking out? Is he just being judgemental?
Eh. They exist out of time. They’re comedic relief who don’t age or die or progress in any way. It’s a little surreal.
I agree. I enjoy Walt as a character but it’s time to… maybe not have him die but at least have him shuffle off to the comic strip retirement home or something.
Thanks for the explanations! You folks add a lot to the comic.
