Bringing Up Father

Two separate publishing projects reprinting George McManus‘s strip Bringing Up Father have been announced. ICv2 reports that NBM will reprint the first two years of McManus’s strip as the third installment in the publisher’s “Forever Nuts” series of books reprinting selected runs of individual humor strips. The contents of this particular book appear to overlap heavily with the now out of print collection of the strip’s first two years published by Hyperion Press in 1977, as described on Clark Holloway’s Bringing Up Father website. NBM’s collection is due in May, 2009.

Elsewhere, in a January 11, 2009 interview with the Comix 411 website, Dean Mullaney notes plans to edit “the official ‘Bringing Up Father’ with the Sunday pages in color” as part of his “Library of American Comics” series, published by IDW.
