Here is the original art for the classic "BLONDIE" Sunday Comic Strip, dated November 24th, 1964. This sunday is written and drawn by legendary American cartoonist, CHIC YOUNG (1901-1973). 

Everyone knows Blondie. More than 2,000 newspapers publish the comic strip in fifty-five countries and thirty-five languages. The "Dagwood Sandwich" has made its way into Webster's New World Dictionary. The antics of the Bumsteads have been featured in movies, novels, and comic books. Blondie graces a United States postage stamp issued to commemorate the 1995 centennial of the American newspaper comic strip.

First appearing at the outset of the Great Depression, Blondie celebrates its seventieth anniversary in the year 2000. Now written by Dean Young, Chic Young's son, and syndicated worldwide by King Features Syndicate, it retains its status as one of the most widely read comic strips in the history of the genre.

The artwork is in very good condition, and is ALL original, no title or word balloon paste-ups! Young fully hand lettered his comic strips. The artwork is signed in the last panel (lower left). The image area of the art measures 15" x 17" inches on standard art board. 

CHIC YOUNG (1901-1973)
Encouraged by his painting mother, Murat Young studied art in Chicago, New York and Cleveland. He started his career in 1920, working for the Newspaper Enterprise Association. His first strip was called 'The Affairs of Jane'. In 1922 he created 'Beautiful Bab', another girl comic. He was employed by King Features Syndicate in 1924. In 1925, he signed the name 'Chic' Young for the first time, in the strip 'Dumb Dora'.

Other strips Chic Young created are 'The Family Foursome' and 'Colonel Potterby and the Duchess', but his most famous is the internationally-known 'Blondie', which he drew from 1930 until his death in 1973.
In 1948 he received the Reuben Award, the first of his many awards that came his way. Chic Young's style and themes have inspired many artists, comic strips, and even sitcoms.
