Bringing Up Father (Jiggs & Maggie) by George McManus (0170-) 1st Appearance January 2nd, 1913 - ‘Jiggs and Maggie’ was the ultimate creation of one of the fathers of the comics George McManus. Beginning in January 1913, Bringing Up Father was the 1920’s-40’s equivalent of Blondie, the delightful marriage cartoon which absolutely dominated the era.  Jiggs was a displaced common man who stumbled into huge wealth and never, ever, lived up to the hoi-poloi life-style. Maggie was his erudite wife who was the love and bane of his common existence. Throughout close to a century of gags and escapades, the two never left each other’s side in a delightful ‘I love you but you drive me crazy’ relationship.  The popularity of Bringing Up Father put the strip in virtually every paper in the country through the 10’s through the 40’s. That means that the supply of these wonderful strips is quite ample and actually depresses their price to the delight of collectors. Dailies sell about as well as Sundays.  One note on the sundays,  many newspapers through the 1940's (including most Puck sections) would have Bringing Up Father leading off their comics sections, effectively wrapping the rest of the comics beneath it.  The result was usually a more pronounced dirty centercrease.  This just tends to make clean pages (usually from bound volumes) even more desirable.
