Paul Karasik and Mark Newgarden: How To Read Nancy

Wednesday, December 20, 2017 - 4:00pm

NANCY, the newspaper comic strip drawn and written by Ernie Bushmiller, was a deceptively simple gag cartoon. You read it, got the joke in a heartbeat, and moved on. But it took a lot of work to create that perfect visual gag. Tonight we talk with PAUL KARASIK and MARK NEWGARDEN, both award-winning cartoonists who have lectured and taught comics internationally. Their new book analyzes a single three panel Nancy strip from forty-four perspectives to reveal the essentials of what makes a successful comic. Their book is HOW TO READ NANCY: THE ELEMENTS OF COMICS IN THREE EASY PANELS.
