    Description

    Chic Young Blondie Daily Comic Strip Original Art, dated 3-24-31 (King Features Syndicate, 1931). Fascinating to watch from a vantage of historical hindsight as Young tries to get a handle on these new and malleable characters, flighty Blondie Boopadoop and trust-fund brat Dagwood Bumstead. Blondie intends to ditch Dagwood and move halfway around the planet. Dagwood is on a hunger strike, having been driven to madness on account of her infidelity. Took a while, but eventually Young would establish Blondie and Dagwood as one of the most famous married couples in the funnypapers, right up there with George McManus's Jiggs and Maggie O'Finnegan. Ink and blue tint over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 18" x 4". Excellent condition.
