Dora proved popular enough to last longer than its forerunners, and when the stock market crash wiped out his savings, Young, thinking he had leverage, lobbied for more money. But he met immediately a parsimonious obstacle in Joseph V. Connolly, King's energetic and imaginative general manager, who was not inclined in the direction of salary increases.
Before Blondie debuted incartoonist Chic Young had attempted to create a female-driven strip without a lot of success. Titles like Beautiful Bab and Dumb Dora were some of the more unfortunate ideas, with Young preoccupied by the notion of having a vapid leading lady. Naturally, everyone did. He might strike you as incapable of tying his own shoes, but there was a time when Dagwood Bumstead carried real potential.
