The entire first half of Nemo's 23rd issue is dedicated to reprinting a complete 1937 story of everyone's favorite orphan.
I can thank the efforts of Richard Marschall and Bill Blackbeard and all the folks behind "Nemo" and Fantographics books for giving me my first opportunity to finally read complete runs of this strip I had always heard of and just glimpsed excerpts from. Between their clear devotion in this great magazine as well as 5 volumes of "The Nemo Bookshelf" I was in hog heaven...and still am whenever I re-read them.
Reading this sequence in particular with Mr. Am shows Annie is the most adopted and cared for orphan ever born. Not only does Annie always have Sandy, whatever family she moves in with from town to town, Daddy Warbucks, The Asp and Punjab looking after her...she sometimes has God hisself!
I don't feel so guilty having friends like Superman, Jesus and The Flying Spaghetti Monster to hang with at Ye Olde Drink Hole now.
Eat this one up kids...it's a corker!!
