Description from the back cover: On Monday, August 13, 1934, eight newspapers commenced printing an obscure comic strip by an equally obscure cartoonist about a family of poor hillbillies living in Kentucky. Before the cartoonist retired with his creation 43 later, Al Capp's Li'l Abner had become internationally famous, syndicated in over 900 newspapers worldwide and avidly followed by millions. Over the years, Capp and Li'L Abner were twin centers of both outrage and delight. Capp's trenchant outlook and sharp wit found voice in his comic strip and he seldom lacked an opinion about any facet of the national scene. John Steinbeck called him the greatest satirist since Laurence Sterne and recommended that he be considered for a Nobel Prize in literature. Others recommended that Capp be boiled in oil. Through all of it, Capp remained true to his personal vision of what Li'l Abner should be, and in the process, made it the greatest comic strip of all time. In 1939, Al Capp staged the wildest Sadie Hawkins Day race to date. Once again, Abner had a close call - but not as close at the time he was on death row in the penitentiary, or the time he was on the receiving end of a mad scientist's death ray, or the time...Well, in 1939, Capp made Abner and the rest of his Dogpatch characters jump through hoops. Also in this volume, you'll meet Lonesome Polecat and the miraculous potion, Kickapoo Joy Juice. You'll see what happens when a king visits Dogpatch. You'll have a ringside seat when Mammy meets Mother Ratfield. You'll enjoy a year's worth of adventure iwth the Yokums inside!
