    Description

    Al Capp Li'l Abner Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 5-11-75 (Chicago Tribune Syndicate, 1975). Even during the waning years of his famous comic strip, Capp retained artistic and editorial control while supervising a staff of assistants. This cantankerous episode razzes President Gerald Ford for his cordial attitude toward the OPEC nations. A fictional Mideastern potentate bears the name of the Maharajah of Shazzan -- a strange bit of nomenclature, in that Shazzan also had been the title of an unrelated Hanna-Barbera cartoon series of 1967. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. The image area of this strip measures 22" x 15". The three tiers are taped together, with adhesive staining. Otherwise, the art is in Very Good condition. From the Estate of Bob Lubbers.
