In 1955, Al Capp was working overtime as a satirical observer of the American scene. His scathing and irreverent wit, aided and abetted by some of the most dynamic black and white art ever to appear on newsprint, hit bullseyes on the ripest targets of the Eisenhower decade: TV gameshows, "Rickey Rat" and the "Magic Kingdom" of Yappland, and an Oval Office encounter with Ike himself! Plus - Tiny Yokum's heart (and hair!) make his young life mizzuble, Daisy Mae suffers the heartbreak of alopecia, Mammy Yokum squares off with Evil-Eye Fleegle, and even more... all within the pages of this rip-roaring volume!
This is the twenty-first volume in the complete reprinting of Al Capp's Li'l Abner. It collects the 1955 daily strips and includes two introductions, a historical overview of the 1950s by Dave Schreiner and "Al Capp's America," a contemporary satirical piece by Al Capp himself. Each volume in this series contains complete, unabridged stories.
