    Al Capp and Frank Frazetta Li'l Abner Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 11-21-54 (United Feature Syndicate, 1954). By introducing Gloria Van Welbilt, Capp found great vehicle for Frank Frazetta to draw more gorgeous women into the strip! McSwine and Van Welbilt have switched places in this story. One of the two of them appear in eight of the eleven panels of this "Welbilt" Sunday -- Hubba-hubba! The large strip was crafted in ink over graphite on seven sections of Bristol board (conjoined on the back with tape) with a combined image area of 21" x 25.75". There is overall toning and the right side panels have a margin line that was whited-out to enlarge the art image area. There is a wave to the bottom left corner of the strip that could easily be pressed or framed out. In Very Good condition.
