Bringing Up Father, was a comic strip from the early days of comic strips featuring an average Joe who became a millionaire, but still hung out at his old haunts.  IDW Publishing is bringing the “From Sea to Shining Sea” storyline to a 272-page hardcover book arriving in November 2009.

“All the fantastic Bringing Up Father Sunday pages will be carefully restored and presented in full color,” Mullaney said. “George McManus championed Art Deco in comics, and the oversized 11” by 10” format is the best possible showcase for his wonderful designs and detailed artwork.”

“From Sea to Shining Sea” sends Jiggs, Maggie, their daughter Nora and her new husband, the British Lord Nevere Worthnotten, on a cross-country trip that ranges from California to Kansas City, Chicago to Toledo, Philadelphia to Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s house at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
