    Description

    Al Capp Li'l Abner Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 11-7-42 (United, 1942). Big and bold, at almost two feet in width. Here is Capp's classic comic strip, distilled to an essence in just one episode. The emblematic Sadie Hawkins Day race is here -- an annual husband-catching tradition -- along with such trademark characters as Gus Goosegrease, Lonesome Polecat and Hairless Joe. Not to mention L'l Abner Yokum, his ownself, as self-confident and knuckleheaded as ever. Brilliant stuff from the feature's earlier years, and beautifully well preserved. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 22" x 5.75". Light marginal toning. Excellent condition.
