As work progresses on our long-awaited third volume of Ernie Bushmiller's NANCY (titled NANCY LOVES SLUGGO, and collecting the years 1949 through 1951), we belatedly realize that we are missing a half-dozen strips needed for this volume.
So we are sending out the plea to NANCY collectors: If you have clippings for any of the following NANCY dailies, we would love to hear from you. (For that matter, we are also including dates for two strips that were omitted from our previous volume, which we will run in Vol. 3 if they can be found).
(Note: We know it's possible to find scans of these strips online. We are looking for original print sources: newspaper clippings, or, even better, proof sheets, or, best of all, original art.)
Contact editor Eric Reynolds at reynolds at fantagraphics dot com — and be sure to pass on this plea to anyone else you think might have contacts, message boards, what have you. NANCY fans unite!
Here are the dates we are looking for:
