Description

From the library of Nelson Lyon (1939-2012), writer-director of the 1972 sex comedy "The Telephone Book," and a staff writer on "Saturday Night Live."

A complete set of Al Capp's Li'l Abner: The Frazetta Years.

Before legendary artist Frank Frazetta became an American institution for his lush paintings, 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 till 1961 Frazetta toiled as a ghost for Al Capp, the most famous and successful cartoonist of his era. Except for a brief 1954 dailies sequence (when Frazetta drew himself as "Frankie the Biker" in a send-up of Marlon Brando's contemporary motorcycle film The Wild Ones) Frazetta's energy was focused on the Li'l Abner Sunday strips. For the first time ever these gorgeous full-color Sundays are collected! Dark Horse published four comprehensive 9" x 12" volumes. Each quarterly volume contains an introduction and extensive annotations by Li'l Abner expert Denis Kitchen.
