Silent Penultimate NANCY Panels by Ernie Bushmiller

Here are some silent penultimate comic strip panels from Ernie Bushmiller's NANCY strip. These are the next to last panels that are devoid of text.

Pulled out of any context, these become moments of zen comic art.

NANCY is copyright United Media. The strips are from Brian Walker's landmark book THE BEST OF ERNIE BUSHMILLER (Comicana Books, 1988), which used a silent penultimate panel for its cover.

I've used a lot of these silent penultimates for Random Acts of Nancy. Thank heaven for the SPUP and Ernie's skillful use of it... I don't know what I'd without it...
