L'il Abner by Al Capp (0800-) - 1st Appearance August 13, 1934 - When Li'l Abner was created in 1934, the country was ready to delight to the innocent meanderings of the Yokum clan of Dogpatch, Arkansas.   The underlying theme of girl chasing boy was somewhat untested in comics when the strip began.   The flapper girl strips like Betty and Blondie,  where the girls were the center of attraction,  had dominated the previous decade.    The chase of Daisy Mae after Abner contributed delightful tension to the strip until the marraige of the two in the 1950s.   By that time, the popularity of the strip had risen to its zenith and had given Al Capp the freedom to use it to make his political statements.   The reactionary turn that the strip took started a long divisive slide in the fandom of the strip.    During the Psychadelic 60's and 70's, the demeanor of the strip was downright pro-establishment cynical.   By the time that the strip ended, it had as many detractors as fans.    That, combined with heavy reprintings have put a bit of a damper on the market for Abner comics.    Early sundays sell well as do fairly uncommon fulls through the early 40's.  Another exception is the stretch between 1952 and 1961 where the legendary fantasy artist Frank Frazetta ghosted for Capp.    The dailies move a bit slower.
