The comic-strip character Cathy, one of America's most famous single career women, finally got married to her hapless longtime boyfriend, Irving--and on Valentine's Day, no less. It's the end of an era-or was it? --USA Today


Rarely has one word, one positive response, resonated so loudly from the world's comic pages. But when leading lady Cathy finally took the plunge--after nearly 30 interminable years!--and accepted boyfriend Irving's marriage proposal, the occasion certainly deserved notice among Cathy fans around the globe.

The Wedding of Cathy and Irving captures all the fun, magic, and--yes--the nerve-racking overanalyzing that filled the Cathy strips leading up to the big decision and the big day itself. This collection features some of the couple's most memorable moments from throughout their long relationship, but the spotlight shines most on the year that included the unexpected ring find, the proposal, the YES, and the frenetic wedding plans that Cathy and Mom both endure and perpetuate.

The longest courtship in cartoon page history came to an end on February 5, 2005. But as The Wedding of Cathy and Irving shows, nothing is quite that simple in Cathy's world. Whether she's pondering pastor possibilities or worrying wedding dress selections to death, Cathy is unequalled in capturing the conundrums of modern women everywhere. It's all Cathy, through and through.
