Thanks! But you might get nauseous if you stare at it too long. :D Have you seen the Nancy comic strip that this character comes from?

That's just too many Sluggos. I can't deal.

"Nancy" had a curious history. The comic started out in the 1920's as "Fritzi Ritz," the story of a rather frivolous flapper. Ernie Bushmiller took over the strip later and I think he was the one who brought in Fritzi's niece Nancy, who gradually became the central character.

That’s interesting—didn’t know that about its history. I think Nancy was one of the most attractively drawn strips—there’s something about its clean and simple style that immediately draws one to it.

Yeah, Fritzi Ritz was definitely not the same style. This page has some examples of the strip in its early days.

I kind of loved this short poem that someone tweeted today.
