    Description

    Al Capp - Original Art Comic Strip Art for L'il Abner Daily, dated 3-17-48 (1948). This comic strip features Al Capp's silly spin on the Dick Tracy mythos in his character, Fearless Fosdick. Who can take 16 bullet holes in the body and still live? Surely Fosdick can! Al Capp's approach to art, with its thick defining line and thinner accents, was perfect for the medium and was enjoyed by a loyal audience for many decades. This piece measures approximately 7" x 22.5" and is in great shape except for a missing title stat that does not detract from the overall appeal.
