Capt. Comics on Bringing Up Father

Forever Nuts is getting press not only for its latest Bringing Up Father collection but also for Happy Hooligan.

Andrew “Capt. Comics” Smith of the Scripps-Howard newspaper chain says:

“Bringing Up Father” was a much copied strip, not only for its simple and engaging premise, but also for creator George McManus’ beautiful art.
This is the third “Forever Nuts” collection I’m aware of, the other two being Happy Hooligan” and “Mutt & Jeff.” I’m eager to support these collections of rarely reprinted comic strips, which are meticulously restored by NBM and should be in every library in America. They’re certainly in mine!”

Amongst other press, Jazma Online also reviewed this, giving it 4 out of 5 stars.

And Rob Clough, on Comic Book Resources said of Happy Hooligan:

“This volume is a “best of” from 1903-1913 and is a must for any fan of humor comics.”
