Uncle Ted Gruber

On April 9, 2018, a new writer/artist debuted on the long-lasting legacy comic strips, Nancy. It was the first artistic change in 23 years. Taking over for Guy Gilchrist was Olivia Jaimes, a pen name, who promised to bring a 21st Century female perspective to the 80+ year-old strip. While reviews were initially mixed, Nancy has become more relevant and most of the negative comments are dismissed as being readers upset that this wasn't their Nancy anymore.

I am not a believer in ghosts. I know, that's sound shocking coming from someone who seems to write a lot of ghost stories and traipses around cemeteries and deals with history but I am a spectral skeptic. Anyway, we all know that noise is really a kid that Uncle Ted kidnapped and has locked in a small cage in his attic, right? He's getting hungry. So very hungry.
