Review: Funny Comics: Jiggs “Bringing up Father” Vol. 3 Book


Funny Comics: Jiggs “Bringing up Father” Vol. 3 Book by Babette Lansing
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a great compilation of the original comic strip “Bringing Up Father”, probably better known as “Maggie and Jiggs” to a couple of past generations of readers. These are originally from the late 1920’s, and the ones in this book cover the time period around Black Tuesday, the Stock Market Crash of 1929 that caused the Great Depression. Jiggs has lost most of the fortune he won, but Maggie still wants to walk in high society and her husband just wants some corned beef and cabbage and some peace.

The reproduction is excellent on these, and the panel-per-page works nice for any Kindle device – you can see the loving detail McManus put into his art.
