Drawn and Quarterly has posted follow-up information to indicate that the publisher’s previously announced plans to reprint comic book work by John Stanley have expanded to include Stanley’s Nancy and Sluggo comic book stories. Tom Devlin writes:
This series will likely begin next summer; it is undetermined at this time just how many volumes there will be in total. These comics came as something as a surprise to me because I just assumed that there was no way they could be as good as the great Bushmiller strips but they really are. Stanley actually expanded the cast of the strip and added a couple of great characters, the Wednesday Addams inspired Oona Goosepimple and Sluggo’s nemesis, Mr. McOnion.
Elsewhere, comics scholar Jeet Heer greets the news by arguing that Stanley is a better writer of comics than the acclaimed and more well-known Carl Barks.
