More rocks

[Nancy, April 1, 2019. Click for a much larger view.]

Today’s Nancy, by Olivia Jaimes, has 1. truth (the “some rocks” trope), 2. fantasy (an origin story and squelched experimentation), 3. an image that has become a meme, and 45. rocks. Count ’em.

But what I like most about today’s strip is the care with which Jaimes has created a faux-Bushmiller panel. Notice the off-white background.

Here’s a 1961 Bushmiller panel with eight rocks.

I snorted with delight at that last panel.

Could Olivia Jaimes be Nancy grown up?

Hard to know, because she is intent on preserving her anonymity. When she appeared at a comics event before a small audience, she disguised herself with hat, scarf, and sunglasses. Whoever she is, she understands Nancy’s impudence, for sure.
