Abbie an' Slats by Raeburn Van Buren (0010-) 1st Daily July 7th, 1937,  1st Sunday January 15th, 1939Abbie ‘an Slats first appeared on July 7, 1937 as a daily with a Sunday feature soon following. The strip revolved around the escapades of Aubrey ‘Slats’ Scrapple, a New York street-kid transplanted into the country town of Crabtree Corners.   The strip was ably written by Al Capp (creator of L’il Abner) , but the wonderful artwork of Raeburn Van Buren overshadowed Capp’s work.   Before ‘Slats’,  Van Buren had been working on special features and various newspaper syndicates.  His artwork would pop up on the Sunday Feature Sections of many newspapers.  Although his artwork is somewhat stifled by the often small size of comics, his obvious talent still shows through nicely. He would continue to draw the strip until it’s end in 1971, one of the longest runs by a single artist on any strip.   The strip was widely syndicated, so the availability of cut strips is usually pretty good. It has a moderate following, buyers usually prefer larger runs to get the flavor of the continuous stories of the feature.  Dailies sell at about the same pace as sundays.
