This second volume picks up where Blondie: The Courtship and Wedding
left off. The story begins with Blondie and Dagwood on their honeymoon and
features one hilarious gag after another. But all is not fun and games when the
newlyweds arrive home. Dagwood's parents have disinherited him and the
optimistic bumbler must go to work!
In the first three years of the strip, Chic Young experimented with
different themes and approaches, but it's in the fourth through sixth years
reprinted in this volume that he establishes the elements that would make
Blondie the most popular comic strip in the world. All of the iconic
elements and many of the regular characters in the strip are introduced in these
pages: Dagwood's boss Mr. Dithers, his neighbor Herb, the dog Daisy...and in
1934, the first of the Bumstead children, Baby Dumpling (who is later given the
name Alexander).
For millions of readers who've loved the Bumsteads over the years, this
essential collection tells the complete tale of the couple's early married
bliss. Produced with the cooperation of the Chic Young family, the book includes
an informative and entertaining introduction by Brian Walker that places
Blondie in its historical context.
