    Yeah, I agree, Bozo has some expertise, but for me, Ignatz is The Master!

    The last sentence repeats a common expression. Nice try on the halo. It’s cigar smoke with a strong aroma.

    Auntie Clockwise less than a minute agoStrip #2 has completely cracked me up!

    And the geometric artwork in the strip is outstanding!

    It’s the diagonals that twirl the propellor on my beanie.

    And, it’s a Musical!

    And, another outstanding example of a “sublime dumbness” in Ernie Bushmiller’s NANCY Strip.

    In comic-strip land, it could be for breaking a sidewalk and exiting a storm drain. The dude really gets around!

    September 10th has BOZO’s cool foot and leg pattern in panels numbers 2 to 4, left-right, right-left, and left-right.

    I reckon that BOZO’s cane is made of Ebony and one hit hurts the criminal into being out-of-action.

    September 11th (Strip #3) confuses me but I sense a pun on a telephone “… broken line…” a ‘phoney’ strip of some kind.

    I find the strip a fine example of Bushmiller’s Mastery of strip-panel geometries.

    This strip is a good mix of linguistic, linear, and sequential patterns. The interfacing of panels #3 and #4 is geometrically astonishing!

    @Susan00100 — When getting right down to the real nitty-gritty of the strip, it is possible to observe that the DAT or the COG isn’t skating.

    Nancy is dragging the creature along the ice like a wagon and the creature’s feet don’t appear to be freezing solid.

    Maybe it’s a cold-blooded animal who exploits children at the skating rink!

    Not being a comic strip cartoon character, I have no idea how to use metal bottle caps for ice skating.

    Sir Marcie has an articulate post above, about how the bottle caps given to a cat can successfully be used as metaphors for Ice Skates!

    It’s a rhetorical gimmick in a two-dimensional world. And I’m gonna stay for the replays!

    Ever an innovator, Nancy knows what she is doing and she seems to know how to do it.

    Many people know how to do it, but few know what they are doing.

    I find Krazy Kat by George Herriman conspicuous in its absence.
