From the back cover: "Before legendary artist Frank Frazetta became an American institution for his lush paintings of muscular barbarians and scantily clad women, he was drawing muscular hillbillies and scantily clad women for an earlier American institution: the comic strip Li'l Abner, which boasted 60 million readers daily."
From 1954 to 1961, Frazetta worked as a ghost illustrator for Al Capp, with most of his drawing devoted to the Li'l Abner Sunday strips.
Vivid reproductions of these classic strips, with introduction and commentary by Denis Kitchen.
