    Al Capp Li'l Abner New Year's Daily Comic Strip Original Art Signed and Inscribed to Stan Freberg (United Feature Syndicate, 1963). Stan Freberg had a strong influence on so many people in all walks of the entertainment business. This is a great original published Li'l Abner daily strip dated 1-1-1963, with a superb gag featuring Father Time and mention of nuclear tests. Artist Al Capp (1909-1979) gifted this art to Stan Freberg, and writes "To Stan, I can't class you with Voltaire and Swift because that's what you said about me -- and I'll be goddammed if I'll class you with me, because you're too young and handsome -- Al Capp." The art is in ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an image area of 18.75" x 5.5". Framed with glass for an overall size of 26.25" x 12.25". Pinholes in the top corners, with minor handling wear; Very Good condition.
