    Description

    Al Capp and Frank Frazetta Li'l Abner Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 1-29-57 (United Feature Syndicate, 1957). Frazetta, as an open-secret ghost/assistant on Abner during 1954-61, lent a lithe and rubbery quality to Capp's own pneumatic drawing style. This example is as lithe and rubbery as the teaming gets, what with a voluptuous Daisy Mae Yokum and an overweight Abner Yokum. Much of originator Capp's humor has a basis in anger, and this example practically seethes. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 18.75" x 5.5". Toning, light soiling, handling wear, and minimal retouching place the selection in Very Good condition.
