Chic Young: He Tickled Our Funny Bones with a Pen

Born today was Murat Bernard “Chic” Young.

Creator of “Blondie” which is among

The best comic strips of all time.*

Are you a fan? Well, here’s why I’m.

With a cup of coffee and Dagwood I’m able

To face the new day at the breakfast table.

Chic Young, BLONDIE 1955-11-14, in Mark N.'s z Comic Strips Comic Art  Gallery Room

*Stan Drake, who drew Blondie in the 1980s and 1990s, stated that Young “has to go down in history as one of the geniuses of the industry.” Wikipedia

Note: Today “Blondie” is drawn by John Marshall.

  • What a wonderful post! Blondie must be one of the longest running comic strips of all time. Good that there are artists who can carry it on.

  • Thanks for the history lesson. I love learning history via biographies.
