Comic With Some Pop

Celebrate Jiggs, the dad who went from highs to lows in his search of the comfort of the middle in the comic "Bringing Up Father." This week's objet d'eBay is a first day cover of the 1995 issue (part of the comic strip classics commemoritives).

Jiggs — and wife Maggie, daughter Nora and son Sonny/Ethelbert — were the creation of George McManus, although the idea of a father struggling to find some comfort in life did survive under different author/artists to the year 2000, 46 years following his death.
