- IDW’s The Library of American Comics invite you to (g-gulp!) (chuckle), (sigh!!), and (*moan*) like a real Dogpatcher at all the fun and excitement in Volume 3 of The Complete Li’l Abner! Enjoy breakneck comedy in these daily and full-color comic strips from 1939 and 1940, as Al Capp spoofs the movies Topper and The Grapes of Wrath, sends Lonesome Polecat and Hairless Joe to New York, armed with a fresh batch of Kickapoo Joy Juice, gets Adam Lazonga, the world’s greatest lover, to give lessons in how to woo a gal “Dogpatch-style”, and stages a battle for the ages as Mammy Yokum throws down against mean ol’ Mother Ratfield!
- Eisner-winning editor and designer Dean Mullaney and writer Bruce Canwell continue to examine this slice of pure Americana, including a look at Li’l Abner’s first appearance in the movies!
