Description from 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. Meet Moonbeam McSwine, lovely daughter of Moonshine McSwine. Her favorite people are pigs. She's incredibly lazy. And in 1941, her father plotted to get her married to Abner Yokum. Meet the Flying Avenger, radio superhero to millions, who looks suspiciously like said Abner Yokum. Meet Big Stanislouse, brutal gangster, and Bet-a-Million Bashby, frustrated gambler. Meet Dorothy Lamour, Barbara Stanwyck, and the niece of Saide Hawkins, five times removed.
