    George McManus Bringing Up Father with Rosie's Beau Topper Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 10-5-41 (King Features Syndicate, 1941). Poor Jiggs, everyone seems to get one up on him! Bringing Up Father (known to many as "Jiggs and Maggie") is George McManus' most enduring creation. He drew it from 1913 until his death in 1954. It also spawned several movies, and McManus played Jiggs in four of them! The topper strip on this Sunday funny is another of his creations, Rosie's Beau. The page is produced on two pieces of Bristol board that have been taped and matted together. Ink over graphite with a combined image area of 16" x 21.5". There is some tanning, and glue residue where the pages are joined together. Overall in Very Good condition.
