It's been a few phridays since Photoshops graced the phront... err, front page of Something Awful dot com, internet comedy website omega 2000 mk II. But that doesn't mean the Something Awful Forums haven't been at work; deep within the goldmines the goons labored all summer, shrugging off the comedy apocalypse that has entombed the greater webscape and wiped out all the surface funny. Deep below the ground, in a dead gray comedy forum, something ancient still stirred.
Honestly, I could not come up with a better personification of "ancient, immortal comedy" than the comic strip Nancy. I'm fairly certain it was read in Pangaea. First rediscovered by forums poster Accretionist, an Ernie Bushmiller Nancy comic from 1972 turned out to be the motherlode thread of the summer.
Here's Accretionist's original, unaltered (except for SA's watermark) source image, which they first posted June 24 2018:
