Sunday, August 15, 1954: And cheap at that price

Read this strip at

Another chapter in the unfolding story of Lucy's mother's desperate search for peace and quiet.

This is a particular favorite strip for me. It has several funny drawings that suit the story perfectly, it reveals something about Lucy's personality, and along the way it paints a vivid picture of the dynamic between Lucy's mother (who needs Lucy to be out of the house sometimes) and father (who foots the bill).

  1. I particularly like Lucy's pose and expression in panel 9. Intense concentration? Indigestion? Seizure?
