9781770460935: Nipper 1967-1968

A FAITHFULLY RENDERED PAEAN TO MID-CENTURY FAMILY LIFE

Doug Wright's masterful newspaper strip returns to suburban life in the late 1960s, where not even the countercultural tumult of the times could ruin domestic bliss or distract from sibling rivalry.

Things are still fun, innocent, and wholesome in the suburbs: there's road hockey in the streets, boys have their friends over for sleepovers, and kids play freely on their own outside, with little or no parental supervision. The pantomime strip does reference contemporary life, however, with the entire Wright family making an excursion to downtown Montreal for the 1967 World's Fair. As always, Wright's stellar draftsmanship, fond eye for detail, and brilliant sense of comic timing shines throughout this volume of the Nipper series.

About the Author:

Doug Wright (1917–1983) was a Canadian cartoonist, whose weekly comic strip, Doug Wright's Family, a.k.a. Nipper, ran for more than thirty-five years in magazines and newspapers across Canada and the United States.

Review:

“There are a lot of things to like about [Nipper] . . . The way these wordless stories are told is like nothing I've seen in a comic strip before.” ―Boing Boing on The Nipper Series

“The strips themselves remain masterful, capturing the flavor of their place and time, along with the wild mood swings of children who live intense lives of dark imagination and violent grudges--and then become wonderfully sweet and kind in an instant.” ―The Onion, The A.V. Club on The Nipper Series

“There are a ton of things to recommend Drawn & Quarterly's tiny gem of a reprint volume . . . The primary reason you'll want to read it is for Doug Wright's magnificently versatile thin-line art work, capable of filling space with copious detail or animating Nipper's suburban family in occasional close-up.” ―The Comics Reporter on The Nipper Series
