"George McManus's classic Art Deco comedy strip gets the deluxe treatment in this Library of American Comics edition. The spectacular Sunday pages are reproduced large and in gloriously restored color. When this mismatched couple treats their daughter and her new husband to a trip across North America, the resulting hijinx stretch From Sea to Shining Sea. McManus's funny gags, outlandish costumes, eye-catching artwork, and lush, Art Deco designs are all on display in this deluxe volume, which features every daily and full-color Sunday from January 2, 1939 to July 7, 1940"--Publisher's web site

"The humor centers on an immigrant Irishman named Jiggs, a former hod carrier who came into wealth in the United States by winning a million dollars in a sweepstakes.Now nouveau-riche, he still longs to revert to his former working class habits and lifestyle. His constant attempts to sneak out with his old gang of boisterous, rough-edged pals, eat corned beef and cabbage (known regionally as "Jiggs dinner") and hang out at the local tavern were often thwarted by his formidable, social-climbing (and rolling-pin wielding) harridan of a wife, Maggie, their lovely young daughter, Nora, and infrequently their lazy son, Ethelbert, later known as just Sonny. Also a character presented in the strip (portrayed as a miserly borrower) was named fittingly Titus Canby. The strip deals with "lace-curtain Irish", with Maggie as the middle-class Irish American desiring assimilation into mainstream society in counterpoint to an older, more raffish "shanty Irish" sensibility represented by Jiggs. Her lofty goal--frustrated in nearly every strip--is to bring father (the lowbrow Jiggs) "up" to upper class standards, hence the title, Bringing Up Father."--Wikipedia

"In 1904, a young George McManus was hired by Pulitzer's New York World as a cartoonist. While he was there he created such strips as The Newlyweds which many comics historians consider the first family comic strip. In 1912, William Randolph Hearst hired McManus away to start a comic strip about a guy called Jiggs, a lower class man who came into a lot of money. With their new wealth, Maggie, Jiggs wife, wanted to enter the upper crust of society but Jiggs just wanted to hang out with his old friends at the local bar playing cards and pool and eat his simple favourite foods. This is the classic strip Bringing Up Father which became the second longest comic strip of the 20th Century. Now, for the first time, Forever Nuts presents all the dailies of the first two years of this classic comic strip, many of which have not been reprinted since they first appeared over 90 years ago. Discover why McManus became known as one of the greats in the field."--Published description
