    George McManus The Newlyweds Sunday Comic Strip Original Art (1900s). Here is McManus' gradual approach to his sustained masterpiece of domestic warfare, Bringing Up Father: Quite unlike the easygoing Jiggs and the violent Maggie, the The Newlyweds' couple is a study in baby-talking affection, complicated by the husband's goofy impulsiveness. Here, he attempts to make up a spring-loaded Murphy Bed -- once a fixture in the smaller apartments -- with disastrous results. A wisecracking parrot supplies the Absurdist narration. The Newlyweds would evolve into Their Only Child at a rival syndicate. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 18" x 10". Overall light toning, edge/corner wear. Very Good condition.
