About Li’l Abner: The Complete Dailies and Color Sundays, Vol. 9: 1951-1952
To millions of daily readers spanning five decades, Al Capp was the man whose biting satire made them laugh as he injected “Lower Slobbovia,” “the double whammy,” and “Sadie Hawkins Day” into our popular lexicon. To Nobel-laureate John Steinbeck, he was “very possibly the best writer in the world today.” This series is the first-ever comprehensive reprinting of the comic strip—including both dailies and meticulously-restored full-color Sundays.
At long last Li’l Abner and Daisy Mae get married in a story so big it earned the cover of Life magazine! But the course of true love never runs smoothly, especially when the newlyweds adopt Li’l Orphan Hammy. Plus, Fearless Fosdick must save the world from The Atom Bum (goodbye, world!); Daisy Mae and Moonbeam McSwine are taken captive by Sahara Sam, the Friendly Slave Dealer; and Abner falls victim to Nightmare Alice’s voodoo powers. All in the complete daily and color Sunday comic strips from 1951 and ’52!
