    Al Capp Studio with Frank Frazetta Li'l Abner Sunday Comic Strip Original Art, dated 3-31-57 (United Feature Syndicate, 1957). Bessie Yokum wants to impress her beau Errol Skin with her ancestry -- and that doesn't include Ma and Pappy. Instead, she hires out a palatial mansion, and a bunch of movie stars to play her relatives, but darned if Errol isn't more charmed by the genuine article, much to Bessie's chagrin. The hand of Frazetta is obvious in the ample womanly charms of the otherwise homely Bessie, and in the delicate linework. The art has been divided into tiers and tastefully matted into an overall image size of 27.5" x 24" and, aside from some slight warping, is in Very Good condition. The piece is accompanied by a Statement of Authenticity from the Animation Plus Gallery.
