    Description

    Chic Young Blondie Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 01-10-31 (King Features Syndicate, 1931). Blondie had started as a culture-clash comedy, pitting flighty Blondie Boopadoop against ill-tempered railroad executive J. Bolling Bumstead in a battle of wills. Bumstead, of course, is the father of playboy Dagwood Bumstead (waiting off-stage during this episode), who will marry Blondie sooner or later and find himself disinherited as a consequence. This early example of a classic-in-the-making comes from the first full year of Blondie (launched on 9-15-30) and contains slapstick exaggerations typical of the Depression-era period. Ink over graphite on Bristol board, with blue-wash shading. Image area, 18" x 4". Excellent condition.
