    George McManus and Zeke Zekley Bringing Up Father Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 2-22-53 (King Features Syndicate, 1953). George McManus' satirical Bringing Up Father ran for 87 years -- a popular favorite, even after its creator's death in 1954. This choice Deco-style example from McManus' last full year of production finds the leading character, Jiggs, touring the mansion of a wealthy friend named Bill Yunnaire. Collaborative art by McManus and Zeke Zekley, assistant since 1935. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 18" x 14". Light toning. Lettering corrections have fallen away in two panels. Editorial notes in margins. Color registration marks intact. Generally Very Good condition.
