  • Celebrating Blondie's 80th anniversary, IDW's Library of American Comics presents Blondie like you've never seen her before! This book collects the early strips by Chic Young for the first time ever, beginning with the first ones from October 1930. Blondie Boopadoop is a light-headed flapper who meets Dagwood Bumstead, the heir to a wealthy, high society fortune. Dagwood's parents are aghast and refuse him permission to marry the blonde, but their son is in love. He and Blondie hatch a scheme — the voracious Dagwood goes on a hunger strike for 28 days, 7 hours, 8 minutes, and 22 seconds.
  • This first volume chronicles the amazing and hilarious courtship, and concludes with the spectacular wedding in February 1933.
  • The Library of American Comics is the world's #1 publisher of classic newspaper comic strips, with 14 Eisner Award nominations and three wins for best book. LOAC has become "the gold standard for archival comic strip reprints...The research and articles provide insight and context, and most importantly the glorious reproduction of the material has preserved these strips for those who knew them and offers a new gateway to adventure for those discovering them for the first time.” - Scoop

About the Author:

Murat “Chic” Young (1901–1973) was born in Chicago but spent most of his childhood on the south side of St. Louis. After graduating high school, he headed back to the toddlin’ town of his birth, where he took night classes at the Art Institute. He eventually got a job in the NEA syndicate and created a couple of pretty-girl comic strips— The Affairs of Jane and Beautiful Bab —before his talents attracted the attention of William Randolph Hearst, for whom he created the very successful Dumb Dora, which debuted in 1924. But it was Young’s creation, in 1930, of the flapper Blondie Boopadoop and Dagwood Bumstead that put the cartoonist in the public consciousness forever. Blondieis now written by Dean Young, Chic Young’s son, and retains its status as one of the most widely read comic strips in history.

From Booklist:

Readers of the long-running newspaper comic strip Blondie will be surprised to learn that it didn’t start out as a bland, formulaic domestic comedy. As these initial installments reveal, Blondie was originally a gold-digging flapper aiming to wed the hapless Dagwood Bumstead, son of a wealthy railroad tycoon who opposes the marriage. Two years after its inception, the strip was floundering—Dagwood would disappear from the continuity for weeks at a time as Blondie dallied with other beaus—until Young got the notion for Dagwood to stage a hunger strike until his parents agreed to the marriage. However, he had to renounce his inheritance to gain their permission, setting the stage for the seven decades of middle-class domesticity that followed. The stunt riveted the attention of newspaper readers, and the subsequent marriage cemented the strip’s place in the pop-culture firmament. The main interest in these early strips is historical and cultural—the art is crude and the humor dated—but comics aficionados will relish the chance to read these rare episodes, collected for the first time. --Gordon Flagg
