Kurzbeschreibung

1. April 2005
It is a rare cartoonist who can introduce new characters into a successful strip without upsetting readers. But since Wiley introduced Lucy, the lovable Pygmy-Clydesdale-with-an-attitude as the companion to Danae, Non Sequitur's cynical anti-heroine, fans have been clamoring for more of the pair. Now readers can enjoy the adventures of Lucy and Danae in the Non Sequitur collection dedicated to their exploits, Lucy and Danae: Something Silly This Way Comes.

Lucy's lovable equine goofiness tempers Danae's overdeveloped cynicism as Danae struggles with school, her father, and her sunny little sister, Kate. World-weary beyond her years, Danae sports a skull-in-heart T-shirt and perpetual scowl, while Lucy embodies unbridled optimism with her horsey grin. From their first meeting at summer camp, to Danae's "sneaky yet noble" plot to train Lucy as a guide horse for the blind (they do exist!), to an unplanned expedition to Santa's Workshop (in Maine, not the North Pole), Danae and Lucy turn the cliche of a sentimental girl and her horse upside down and inside out. With Lucy and Danae, Wiley Miller has found a winning combination that readers can't resist.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Wiley Miller began his career as a political cartoonist in 1976, and his incisive drawings have won him several honors, including, in 1991, the prestigious Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award. He moved to Iowa City, Iowa, in 1992 to devote his full-warped attention to Non Sequitur. Non Sequitur is the only cartoon to win National Cartoonists Society awards in both the comic strip and comic panel categories, and Wiley Miller is the only cartoonist to win a Reuben in his first year of syndication.

5.0 von 5 Sternen "Death Before Conformity!" 29. April 2005
Von wiredweird - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Danae, the queen of attitude.

She's the one who wraps herself in an American flag, so that any offense against her whim of iron is an offense against all that America stands for. She's the one who feels that explosives, combustibles, and Ken dolls have a natural affinity for each other. She's the one who wants to preach the pleasures of the Taliban to the Jehovah's Witnesses, which she describes as "enlightening the deserving."

Then there's Lucy, the pygmy pony. I'm not sure what to say about Lucy, except that she's the best critter in comics since Calvin's Hobbes went off to that "Best Of" collection in the sky.

Wiley's cartoons always present a warped, cynical, and utterly accurate view of the world. He keeps Danae around as the voice of his most thoroughly warped accuracy. I gues that's part of what earns her a whole branch of her own in Santa's "naughty or nice" division - the branch that keeps putting in for overtime and hazard pay.

This collection brings over a hundred pages of dailies and Sunday color funnies. I could wish that the Sunday strips were a bit bigger - some are small enough to interfere with easy reading. And, as with every other Wiley collection I've seen, the back cover comes way too soon.

Still, this one is worthwhile for every comics fan and essential for Wiley fans. In fact, it might even turn youinto a Wiley fan - but then you'll have the book already and be way ahead of the game. Go ahead, enjoy Danae in all her dark-clad glory.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Lucy and Danae rock, but this compilation doesn't 17. März 2006
Von J. Yabut - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I've been following Danae's antics in the Nonsequitur strip for the past 3-4 years. In fact, she was the reason why I started reading Nonsequitur, period. She reminds me of a smarter (though she also gets poor grades) female version of Calvin (you know, the boy with the stuffed tiger).

Introducing Danae to Lucy was one of the best things to happen to that strip. Danae found her match in a smart-talking horse, who also managed to temper Danae's cynicism a *little*. Even though Lucy happens to be a talking horse, she isn't totally "humanized" like other talking critters. She retains many animal-like characteristics, like her tendency to "drop a load" in not-so-appropriate settings - like Danae's classroom (it isn't possible to housebreak a horse, right?)

On to this first compilation: I must say, I was a bit disappointed. There seems to be many strips that are missing; stories stop and start without any rhyme or reason. If I remember correctly, though the strip is called "Nonsequitur", the Lucy and Danae stories were actually a bit organized. Part of the problem is that this collection only includes panels that feature both characters - when during the course of the strip, a lot of action happened in the absence of either Lucy or Danae. Maybe if this was a collection focusing on Danae - with Lucy as a bonus - it would've been a little more coherent.

My other complaint is that this collection is too darn short, and they tried to hide the lack of content by spreading a single strip over a whole page. It's not $12 worth of dailies.

I'm still a fan of Lucy and Danae, and will continue to follow their exploits. I just hope that the next compilation (if there is one) is a bit more substantial. Two out of five stars.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great collection! 4. Juni 2006
Von beanbug - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Wiley Miller has become one of my favorite cartoonists. He's one of those unusual cartoonists who uses both continuing characters with a storyline and non-character gags in the same strip. He's also more than a little political, which may not be to everyone's tastes.

This book gathers the strips featuring Danae, cunning and willful daughter out to get her own way, and her horse, Lucy. Laugh out loud funny social satire at its best! (A personal favorite: Danae trying to shock her father by wanting to go door to door to Jehovah's Witnesses and preach the joys of joining the Taliban.)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Old Reader 1. März 2013

I have been reading the funny page for as long as I could read (about 57 years). Non Sequitor is the best funny since Peanuts. This book was a great gift for my 11 year old niece who mloves horses.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Nothing better than Lucy and Danae 3. Februar 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
If you are a fan of Non Sequieter (sp?) you will love this collection. See when Danae first met Lucy and some of their early adventures. You won't regret it. This was the first I bought one of these on my kindle. The dally strip came across great but some of the Sunday's were hard to read with my bifocals.
