The story begins with Blondie and Dagwood on their honeymoon and features one hilarious gag after another. But all is not fun and games when the newlyweds arrive home. Dagwood’s parents have disinherited him and the optimistic bumbler must go to work.

In the first three years of the strip, Chic Young experimented with different themes and approaches, but it’s the years reprinted in this volume that he establishes the elements that would make Blondie the most popular comic strip in the world.
