Blondie turns 80 years old today
Chic Young’s Blondie first debuted in newspapers 80 years ago today. The strip featured Blondie, a hip young flapper and Dagwood, the son of a rich industrial tycoon. Dagwood’s father disapproved of Blondie and marrying her resulted in disinheritance, banishment to suburbia and running into the mailman to catch the car-pool.
Chic drew the strip until his death in 1973. His son Dean and Jim Raymond continued on with the strip.
