It's here! This 264-page hardcover just released by Abrams ComicArts is sure to be the definitive comics biography of the one and only Ernie Bushmiller. Three Rocks digs deep and unearths some gems of insight (along with plenty of classic Nancy strips). A MUST for all Ernie Bushmiller – and Bill Griffith – fans!
Three Rocks weaves together fact and fantasy, history and speculation, as Griffith mixes research and his own artful musings with classic Bushmiller reprints. Uniquely and intriguingly, Griffith samples Bushmiller artwork – individual panels along with isolated figures from the strips – and remixes them for his own narrative ends (a little bit like a purposefully intentional version of Five Card Nancy), in most cases adding his own dialogue.
