Ask the Archivist: “KATZENNIVERSARY”

Hello Fans, Apropos of all the calendar talk lately, I’ve realized that, a little after noon today, it will be 12:12 on 12/12/12. Is there something cosmic about that? I know the numbers won’t line up like that again until 1/1/01, eighty-nine years from now. So if it means something, now’s the time. More importantly, today marks another year [...] Keep Reading

Ask the Archivist: Thanksgiving With Blondie and Dagwood Bumstead

Today, we show a scene from the first year of the Bumsteads’ married life in “BLONDIE,” specifically their honeymoon Thanksgiving in 1933. Reader Email To Tom Ferreira: “RIBBONS AND HAYWIRE” was perhaps too simple, the gags were mainly of the precocious statements/ambitions genre that are usually the staple of kids in strips. I don’t know [...] Keep Reading
