Many connoisseurs — including Art Spiegelman, Daniel Clowes, Scott McCloud (creator of the "Five-Card Nancy" card game), Joe Brainard, and Andy Warhol — have recognized that Bushmiller's often-corny Nancy approached its own kind of zen-like cartoon perfection. In its own way, it turned out Nancy was in fact the most iconic comic strip of all; The American Heritage Dictionary actually uses a Nancy strip to illustrate its entry on "comic strip." Fantagraphics' beloved Nancy series finally packages Nancy with the reverence it deserves. Our third volume contains another full three years of daily Nancy strips, from an era many regard as Bushmiller's finest.
