Mr. and Mrs. by Clare Briggs  (0980-) 1st Appearance April 20, 1919 - When Clare Briggs created Mr. & Mrs., he was already a long-time veteran cartoonist who had produced single panel dailies for decades.   Mr. & Mrs. was his attempt to portray the nuclear family with a very sharp focus on an ill-advised husband and wife pairing of Vi and Joe Green.   Mr. & Mrs. was a gag strip from day one, each week the friction of the relationship was given to us in typical day-to-day scenarios.   The humor was mostly light, but there was the occasional biting remark which would make the point of the week.   Briggs passed away in 1930 but the strip was carried on into the 1960's by a bevy of unremarkable artists.  The market for Mr. & Mrs. is slow,    Both dailies and sundays can be obtained at very economical prices.
