LOS ANGELES, April 19, 2017 – Due to popular demand, the Young family is offering of never-before- released Blondie Sunday comic strips for auction on April 27, 2017. Interested bidders may participate in the auction online at www.natedsanders.com.
The Blondie Sunday strips begin in April, 1931 and include Blondie & Dagwood’s first dinner party (the future catering entrepreneur doesn’t know how to cook yet), the Bumsteads just getting to know their new neighbors the Woodleys during an automobile ride in the country, precocious Baby Dumpling wreaking havoc, Dagwood sleeping in late and the usual Bumstead hijinks.
Dean Young said of the comic strips: “My dad, Chic Young, was a genius! His talent for storytelling and artistic skills are still unmatched today. He once said that he found the magic formula for creating Blondie by simply restricting his premises to: eating, sleeping, going to work, and raising a family.
Chic set the bar of excellence at the highest level...it is still the level we strive to achieve in the modern Blondie comic strip of today. And today, the Blondie comic strip is one of the most popular comic strips in the world appearing in 2,300 newspapers all around the world. Blondie is translated into 35 different languages in 55 countries and read by an estimated 280,000,000 people every day.”
