Dumb Dora by Murat 'Chic' Young (0470-) 1st Appearance 1924 - One of the flapper gag strips of the 1920's, Dumb Dora was conceived in 1924 by the father of 'Blondie', Chic Young.  Under Chic Young, 'Dumb Dora' would become a mildly popular sunday strip.   Dora, the Heroine,  was hardly 'dumb' but certainly aloof with her lovelife.  Inspite many suitors, Dora would stay faithful to her freedom and make her pseudo-boyfriends look bad.   Unfortunately, Chic Young would tire of the strip and left the strip to various other artists in the early 30's.  Without Young's guidance the strip never quite got out of flapper-mode and died in the mid-30's.  Still 'Dumb Dora' and 'she aint so dumb' became phases etched in pop-culture thanks to this strip.    The market for Dumb Dora is relatively thin, especially in comparison to it's Chic Young-drawn successor, Blondie.  Collectors like the 1920's/30's full-color fulls.
