Nancy by Olivia Jaimes
Type: Comic Strip
Available for print / Web / mobile
One of Nerdist's Best Comics of 2020!
Nancy and her family and friends have become beloved worldwide icons since their first appearance in Ernie Bushmiller’s Fritzi Ritz comic strip in 1933. By 1938, Fritzi's adopted niece was so popular the comic was renamed Nancy. Since then, there have been daily smiles and laughs, comic books, animated cartoons and 80 years of affection for this little whirlwind in a plaid skirt!
Not much is known about Olivia Jaimes, the reclusive cartoonist behind "Nancy" as of April of 2018. Her work revitalizing the strip has garnered accolades from publications including New York Magazine, Vice, the A.V. Club and more.
