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. 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. All in the complete daily and color Sunday comic strips from 1951 and ’52!

- “Capp was a genius. You wanna argue about it? I’ll fight ya, and I’ll win.”—Ralph Bakshi
