L’il Abner Vol. 1: 1934-1936


Written and illustrated by Al Capp


Head for the hills! Next stop: Dogpatch, the sleepy little home of Pansy and Lucifer Ornamental Yokum and their 19-year-old son, Li’l Abner! Volume 1 of Al Capp’s comedy masterpiece starts at the beginning and includes all the full-color Sunday pages never before collected in book form. Li’l Abner moves to New York to live with his rich aunt and has to dodge both kidnappers and grasping socialites!

Then it’s a classic case of mistaken identity when Li’l Abner’s evil twin, the ruthless criminal Gat Garson, comes to town…
