Flickr Fun

I’m eager to push that depressing Blackwater post further down, so here are three great sets from Flickr.

As previously mentioned, I am a big fan of old Penguin/Pelican design. Here’s a set of album covers reimagined as Pelican paperbacks. Here are two sets of different comics artists tackling the same subject matter: David Bowie and Nancy. And Fantagraphics has some exciting news for Nancy fans!


  1. Have you seen Joe Brainard's take on Nancy?


  2. Thanks M, I think I've seen one or two of those out of context before, but didn't know anything about Brainard. Very interesting! At first I kind of agreed with Bill Griffith (though for slightly different reasons), but by the time I got to If Nancy Had An Afro, I was completely sold.

    I've always meant to find How To Read Nancy--have you ever seen that?

  3. Okay...that was much easier than I expected. If anyone is curious here it is in PDF: www.laffpix.com/howtoreadnancy.pdf
