McManus, George (1884-1954) One of the most prolific of the early cartoonists, McManus is remembered today for his prototypical married couple, Jiggs and Maggie. The rags-to-riches pair fought it out in the funny papers, setting the tone for many later incarnations of the battle of the sexes.

Signature and illustration ("Geo McManus"). One page, 3 x 4", n.p., 1939. Black ink on white card stock. An original illustration of Jiggs himself, along with McManus' name and the date. One minor abrasion hidden in the name (visible on close examination), otherwise fine condition.
Estimated Value $75 - 125.

Realized $173
