June 19, 1952: They grow up so fast


A momentous strip: Lucy has lost her eye-circles then facing forward! And she's talking just like everyone else! And she isn't referring to herself in third-person anymore! And it reveals a glimmer of the raging inferno beneath the surface too! Oh, it's also a funny strip.

(Note that there is a Sunday strip coming up where she has eye circles. And in a couple of months she refers to herself in the third person one more time. This doesn't mean Lucy's early self is entirely banished just yet....)


  1. Sunday strips are usually done well in advance of the dailies, so perhaps that's why she still has eye circles the forthcoming strip.

  2. Ah, the secret origins of Lucy's madness.
