    Description

    Al Capp and Frank Frazetta Li'l Abner Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 12-2-56 (United Feature Syndicate, 1956). Billionaire Chester Ghoul (a poke at fellow cartoonist Chester Gould) tries to break up Abner and Daisy Mae's happy marriage with a pile of money. This Sunday was produced during the period that Frank Frazetta was an assistant to Capp, and pains were made to make sure there were enough bee-yoo-tee-full wimmens in the strips for Frazetta to draw. Thankfully, that is something that Dogpatch, USA does not run short of. The Sunday was created in ink over graphite on three sections of Bristol board with a combined image area of 27.5" x 18". They were previously conjoined with masking tape on the back; however, one has since come loose again. The boards are toned with some discolored art correction whiteout, and the three tiers have been folded between panel gutters to allow mailing to and from the syndicate. Overall they are in Very Good condition.
