The iconic daily comic strip, Nancy, once again highlights GRAMMY and Dove winner, Jason Crabb this week. This is Crabb’s second time “in the funny papers.” In December of 2013, the comic strip featured Phil Fumble – who is dating Nancy’s aunt Fritzi – wearing a t-shirt with the singers name – Jason Crabb – on the front.
Now, once again, Guy Gilchrist – illustrator of the famed comic strip – has featured Jason Crabb into a very important story arc. This time, Phil wears a t-shirt with the message Love Is Stronger – Jason Crabb” emblazoned on the front. Phil wears this t-shirt during the strip for the entire week – each time you see Phil, he will be wearing his “Love Is Stronger – Jason Crabb” t-shirt. It’s the first time Gilchrist has featured an artist for an entire week in the history of Nancy.
The story arc featured is a background on Phil Fumble. Aunt Fritzi and Phil were high school sweethearts and he reentered Fritzi’s life last year. We find out that Phil had a troubled childhood as he lived with an abusive stepparent causing him to cope with many trials in his youth. Through mentoring by his uncle, who is in ministry, Phil’s life is changed through the love of this relative. As the story evolves, we see that Phil Fumble is wearing a shirt that says”Love Is Stronger – Jason Crabb,’ a very appropriate shirt.
