    One thought on “Lucy and Danae: Something Silly This Way Comes”

    1. Danae is a young girl and Lucy is her pony. Both have their own vision of the world and try it out with varying degrees of success. Danae lives with her father and sister in Los Angeles at the beginning of the story but a move is in the works. Occasionally, after Danae has pulled something, Dad is found drinking in a bar next to some guy that looks vaguely like Richard Nixon. I have always loved this comic and this is a nice book.

    2. My mom came across this book somewhere and bought it because it has my name on it. :) It has a character who shares my name, my favorite animal as a sidekick and according to , this comic strip began six days after I was born. Quelle coïncidence !Anyway, it's not my favorite comic strip in the world, but it was fun and enjoyable and I'm glad I have it. :)

    3. Non Sequitur has become my favorite "edgy" comic. Wiley has a real finger on the pulse of the nation and has no qualms about saying what he (hem, his characters) thinks. My favorite character, and probably about everyone else's, is Danae because of her nihilistic attitude towards everything. This book is the only one that features just her and Lucy, her horse. The two make the best comedy team since Rowan and Martin, since Martin and Lewis, since Abbot and Costello, well, you get my point.If you [...]

    4. This is a rarity in Wiley Miller's work, since one of the joys of his comic is the change from day to day, as reflected by the Non Sequitur title. But this collection is devoted to the story of Lucy, a lovable if improbable horse, and the girl she meets at camp, Danae, who is skeptical, worldly-wise, and anything but lovable. Danae arranges for Lucy to come back from camp with her--nobody else wants a horse like Lucy--and they eventually convince Danae's father to move to Maine, which is a bit m [...]

    5. Fun read!Pithy writing from Wiley Miller who has an in depth view on humanity's interaction with politics and life in general. Lucy and Danae have always been my favorites (as well as his bears).
