The spunky, spikey-haired little girl Nancy debuted on newspaper comics page in 1933. But in her 85 year history, she has only been drawn by men — until now.
In April, Olivia Jaimes debuted as the first woman cartoonist to draw “Nancy.” And in rebooting the comic strip, she’s introducing a distinctly 21st century sensibility, filled with jokes about social media.
“I love this strip so much that I want to bring it to a new generation,” says Jaimes. “And I want to translate it into terms they can understand.”
