Nancy: A Comic Collection
The debut collection of Nancy comics by Olivia Jaimes, whose fresh and irreverent take on the classic comic strip has earned praise from The New York Times, The Washington Post, NPR, The AV Club, Vice, Vulture, Vox, Smithsonian Magazine, and readers across the internet.
In 2018, Olivia Jaimes became the first woman to write and illustrate the classic comic strip Nancy. Her modern yet classic look and smart, tech-savvy sense of humour earned praise from dozens of media outlets, many of which named it the best comic strip of the year.Â This hardcover collection includes the first nine months of Jaimes' take on Nancy, along with an introduction, essay, interview with the author, and a special gallery of Nancy fan art by the author.
Since Nancy was re-launched in April 2018 with its first woman creator in the strip's 80-year history, the classic-turned-modern comic strip has become a bona fide sensation. Olivia Jaimes' wry, self-referential, tech-savvy take on the iconic orphan girl has earned praise from fans of original creator Ernie Bushmiller's offbeat humor, while also getting shout-outs on Twitter from the most popular and cutting edge web cartoonists.Â Jaimes' Nancy has been the subject of features and critical praise in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Onion's AV Club, Vice, Comics Beat, Smithsonian Mag and many others.
