Tijuana Bibles: Fritzi Ritz of Nancy

I just received another nice lot of Tijuana Bibles. These ones found me because of my previous Betty Boop TJ scan so--to keep building the karma--I'm going to post another one.

My favorite of this lot stars Fritzi Ritz, the saucy flapper and parental figure in Ernie Bushmiller's sublimely dumb, Nancy.

Though Nancy doesn't appear in this (thankfully), the technique of having two characters stare over a wall at off-stage action feels like a nod to Bushmiller's minimalism.

More Tjs for sale from my ABE store here.

And while you're at it, new 60s sleaze in the Pulp Fiction Cover Gallery.
