About this title


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 1938, Abner met his match when he was caught by the aptly named Strange Gal during the second Sadie Hawkins Day race. Abner became an orphan in that year, and pulled a stretch in prison, too! Once again, Al Capp, creator of Li'l Abner, put Abner, the Yokums, and the rest of his Dogpatch characters through their paces. In this volume, you'll meet Old Man Mose, and Daisy Mae's repellent relatives, the murderous Scraggs, cause much more trouble than they're worth. You'll visit West Misery, Fat Chance, New York, and, of course, Dogpatch. Enjoy a year's worth of other great adventures with Abner and the Yokums inside!
