Fritzi Ritz by Ernie Bushmiller (0550-) 1st Appearance October 9, 1922  1st Sunday,  1929 - Fritzi Ritz is best known for being the strip from which Nancy spun-off from.  In it's own right, Fritzi Ritz was a fine offering by Ernie Bushmiller which contained gags just as funny as those in Nancy.  Fritzi Ritz started as a flapper strip of the 1920's.  The character's appearance evolved past the flapper stage, but the gag-line stayed fairly close to the 1920's formula of a zany girl being followed by her beau (in this case Phil Fumble).  Nancy showed up in the early 1930's on a visit and zig-zagged in and out of this strip until it ended in the late 1960's.   The market for Fritzi Ritz is fairly strong.  Since the strip started in the 1920's when most strips were still full-size, collectors flock to those.  Those command a very modest premium above the common strip.  The only other real premium strips are the first appearance strips of Nancy.  In all, Fritzi Ritz is an economical, high quality buy.
