Al Capp's "Why I Let Li'l Abner Marry"

By | Sunday, March 31, 2013 3 comments
The March 31, 1952 edition of Life sported not just a cover by Li'l Abner creator Al Capp, but an explanation of why he changed the long-running dynamic of the strip by having Abner and Daisy May get married. You can read it in these scans from the issue.

Thanks for posting this article. I just got Capp's biography by Michael Schumacher and Denis Kitchen, and now I want to read it even more. Have you read it yet?

No, I'm more than a little behind on my reading. I haven't even ordered the book yet.

I understand. Apparently, I am more than enough behind on my responding :p

My book is sitting there, taunting me to be read. Ah, work...
