April Fools: ‘Nancy,’ ‘Heart of the City’ swap creators for the day

Olivia Jaimes and Steenz reveal why characters in both strips never seem to age.

April Fools’ Day, aka the day you can’t trust anything on the internet, has arrived, bringing fake news about changes to company names and resurrected projects.

While in recent years it has become a day to dread, there are also some fun aspects — like the fact that Olivia Jaimes and Christina “Steenz” Stewart traded comic strips for the day.

Jaimes, of course, is the regular creator of Nancy, the delightful comic strip she took over a few years back to great acclaim (at least by most people). Steenz, meanwhile, took over Heart of the City in 2020. Today, though, they wrote and drew the other’s strip.
