The Lawrence Welk of Cartoonists: Ernie, Nancy, and the Bushmiller Society | The Comics Journal

“Why Bushmiller?” Wheeler asks, his voice cracking plaintively. “What kind of people are attracted to a Nancy cult? And who is behind the organized weirdness?”

Nancy soon became a celebrated strip among the RAW crowd. And whenever anyone would say it was stupid or they didn’t get it, we would just close our eyes and smile. Nancy was so corny it was beyond corny. It somehow shifted into the kind of meta-world that only Zen masters navigate.

A Kinder, Simpler Time Dept.: Your Comics | The Daily Mirror | Los Angeles Times

Fantagraphics Books - Fantagraphics to Publish Ernie Bushmiller's Nancy

To say that Nancy is a simple gag strip about a simple-minded snot-nosed kid is to miss the point completely. Nancy only appears to be simple at a casual glance. Like architect Mies Van Der Rohe, the simplicity is a carefully designed function of a complex amalgam of formal rules laid out by the designer. To look at Bushmiller as an architect is entirely appropriate, for Nancy is, in a sense, a blue print for a comic strip. Walls, floors, rocks, trees, ice-cream cones, motion lines, midgets and principals are carefully positioned with no need for further embellishment. And they are laid out with one purpose in mind - to get the gag across. Minimalist? Formalist? Structuralist? Cartoonist!

At the core of every story: the lonely, homely little freak-girl Nancy, who looks like the mutant spawn of Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman, and who slogs through her ugly life like Charlie Brown without the crushing self-pity.
