Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
From 1934 to 1977, cartoonist Capp took newspaper readers deep into the "mountings" of Kentucky for the crazy and highly popular misadventures of the poor and undereducated but honest and superstrong Li'l Abner Yokum and the other hayseed residents of Dogpatch. This second oversized volume in IDW's handsome new reprint series features feuding families, cruel villains, mistaken identities, amnesia, psychic powers, dream sequences, world traveling, fortunes won and lost, Li'l Abner attending a girls' school in a sailor uniform, and the introduction of Sadie Hawkins' Day, on which the unmarried women of Dogpatch win the hand of any man they can catch (on foot). But the pining, beautiful Daisy Mae doesn't win her dense, on-again-off-again beau Li'l Abner yet. VERDICT The strip shows the first inklings of its famous satirical bent here. Capp's characters—like the scrappy and wise Mammy Yokum (a sort of female backwoods Popeye, right down to the corncob pipe)—are largely a hoot, as is the mountain folk's hilarious dialect, and plots often play out in unexpected comical ways. Another classic done justice by IDW's "Library of American Comics."—S.R.
