The comic strip Blondie has been published by King Features Syndicate in
newspapers around the country since Monday, September 8, 1930. The strip
features Blondie Bumstead and her sandwich-loving husband Dagwood. Chic
Young (below) drew Blondie until his death in 1973, and the duties were then
passed on to his son Dean Young, who continues to write the strip today. The
strip has remained popular, appearing in more than 2,000 newspapers in 47
countries and translated into 35 languages.
