In my considered opinion, Sluggo was a terrific comic character. If you know Ernie Bushmiller’s Nancy, you know that it was one of the stupidest comics ever created. Ernie, himself, used to say when asked about what makes a comic strip successful. “Dumb it down”. And he was right. Nancy was so minimalistic. That’s what made it great. It was the kind of comic strip that you just had to read. And Sluggo always fascinated me. This collection is from Kitchen Sink’s How Sluggo Survives. How does he? He’s a little kid, he lives alone in a shack with no money and no parents. But he gets by.
