    The 50th Anniversary of Blondie is cover-featured. Blondie is a much-loved comic strip created by Chic Young that has been syndicated in newspapers since 1930. Originally, the strip centered on Blondie Boopadoop, a carefree flapper girl who spent her days in dance halls. On February 17, 1933, after much fanfare and buildup, Miss Boopadoop was married to Dagwood Bumstead, a wealthy boyfriend of hers. Unfortunately for the Bumsteads, Dagwood was disowned by his upper-crust family for marrying beneath his class, and he has been slaving away in the office of the J. C. Dithers Construction Company to support his family ever since. Blondie and Dagwood have stayed together, living in suburbia next door to Herb and Tootsie Woodley. The Bumstead family has grown with the addition of a son Alexander (originally "Baby Dumpling"), a daughter Cookie, and a dog named Daisy. Alexander and Cookie have grown up into teenagers who uncannily resemble their parents. Blondie has received many honors throughout the years as a classic comic strip, including its own U.S. postage stamp in 1995. Chic Young drew Blondie until his death in 1973, when the control of the strip passed to his son Dean Young. Dean Young has collaborated with a number of artists on the strip, including Jim Raymond, Stan Drake, and most recently Dennis LeBrun. While the look of Blondie has been carefully preserved, a number of details have been altered to keep up with changing times. Blondie herself is no longer simply a house-wife, but she and Tootsie Woodley started a catering business in 1991. Dagwood still knocks heads with his boss, Mr. Dithers, but now he does it in his capacity as Webmaster for J. C. Dithers Construction Company. Cover price $4.00.
