Nipper in Africa




Journalist Brad Mackay writes about his recent trip to Addis Ababa, where he gave this lucky boy a copy of Nipper.

I like how the book wins out over the TV set (Brad, we know this is staged, but I’d still like to believe he really did turn his back on the TV).

Doug Wright’s wordless comics are especially relevant to kids anywhere in the world, although I imagine this boy is likely even more intrigued (baffled?) by the winter strips featuring snowball fights.

OK, you’ve done your work Brad. Now please keep him on the mailing list and send him the next volume, 1965-1966.
