Bill Griffith Meet & Greet — Three Rocks: The Story of Ernie Bushmiller: The Man Who Created Nancy - at Union Market
09/08/2023 | 6:00pm – 7:30pm | Poilitics & Prose - Union Market
From Bill Griffith, creator of Zippy the Pinhead and Nobody’s Fool, comes Three Rocks, a biography of cartoonist Ernie Bushmiller, creator of the iconic comic strip Nancy. But this graphic novel is about more than a single comic book artist. It is the story of this American art form, tracing its inception in 1895 with the Yellow Kid, the creation of Nancy in 1933, and all the strips that followed, including Peanuts and The Far Side. When Bushmiller died in 1982, Nancy was running in almost 900 daily newspapers—a number few syndicated cartoonists ever achieve.
Bill will be signing his latest book at the Union Market Politics & Prose.
