About this title


  • Maggie and Jiggs are back in "Of Cabbages and Kings," an extravanga that contains all dailies and Sundays from February 22, 1937 — December 31, 1938. The hilarious battling couple go to London for the King's coronation. Upon their return, Jiggs decides the only way he'll convince Maggie to move back to the old neighborhood is to lose his fortune. He makes one outlandish investment after another, but each time he only becomes richer. Until he hits on the right formula. For Maggie, the unthinkable happens: it's back to eating boiled cabbage when the wealthy Jiggs goes broke!

About the Author:

George McManus (1882–1954) began his newspaper career at age thirteen, working for five dollars a week at the St. Louis Republic. He moved to New York in 1903, began Bringing Up Father in 1913, and became one of the wealthiest cartoonists in the world during the 1930s. Like Jiggs, his comic strip hero, McManus never abandoned his old friends or his appreciation for life's simple pleasures. He parlayed two battling lovebirds named Maggie and Jiggs into a worldwide sensation, seen in five hundred newspapers, translated into nineteen different languages worldwide, and honored in 1995 with a U.S. postage stamp in the "Comic Strip Classics" collection.
