9781613771020: Blondie Volume 2: From Honeymoon to Diapers & Dogs Complete Daily Comics 1933-35

The story begins with Blondie and Dagwood on their honeymoon and features one hilarious gag after another. But all is not fun and games when the newlyweds arrive home. Dagwood’s parents have disinherited him and the optimistic bumbler must go to work.

In the first three years of the strip, Chic Young experimented with different themes and approaches, but it’s the years reprinted in this volume that he establishes the elements that would make Blondie the most popular comic strip in the world. All of the iconic elements and many of the regular characters in the strip are introduced in these pages: Dagwood’s boss Mr. Dithers, his neighbor Herb, the dog Daisy...and in 1934, the first of the Bumstead children, Baby Dumpling (who is later given the name Alexander).

For millions of readers who’ve loved the Bumsteads over the years, this essential collection tells the complete tale of the couple’s early married bliss. Produced with the cooperation of the Chic Young family, the book includes an informative and entertaining introduction by Brian Walker that places Blondie in its historical context.

This is the very beginning of Blondie and Dagwood’s life as we now know it.

About the Author:

Murat “Chic” Young (1901–1973) was born in Chicago but spent most of his childhood on the south side of St. Louis. After graduating high school, he headed back to the toddlin’ town of his birth, where he took night classes at the Art Institute. He eventually got a job in the NEA syndicate and created a couple of pretty-girl comic strips— The Affairs of Jane and Beautiful Bab —before his talents attracted the attention of William Randolph Hearst, for whom he created the very successful Dumb Dora, which debuted in 1924. But it was Young’s creation, in 1930, of the flapper Blondie Boopadoop and Dagwood Bumstead that put the cartoonist in the public consciousness forever. Blondieis now written by Dean Young, Chic Young’s son, and retains its status as one of the most widely read comic strips in history.

Review:

For millions of readers who've loved the Bumsteads over the years, this essential collection tells the complete tale of the couple's early married bliss. Produced with the cooperation of the Chic Young family, the book includes an informative and entertaining introduction by Brian Walker that places Blondie in its historical context."
