Bringing Up Father, Vol. 2: Of Cabbages and Kings


By George McManus with Zeke Zekley

Maggie and Jiggs are back in “Of Cabbages and Kings,” an extravaganza that contains dailies and Sundays from 1937 and 1938. The combustible-yet-inseparable couple go to London for the King’s coronation.

But the hilarity doesn’t end there. Upon their return, Jiggs decides the only way he’ll convince Maggie to move back to the old neighborhood is to lose his fortune. He makes one outlandish investment after another but each time he only becomes richer…until he hits on the right formula. For Maggie, the unthinkable happens: it’s back to eating boiled cabbage when the wealthy Jiggs goes broke!
