    Fearless Fosdick Vol. 1 by Al Capp.

    Fosdick was a strip-within-a-strip that was an intricate part of Li'l Abner for decades. Fearless Fosdick was initially just a parody of Chester Gould's popular Dick Tracy comic strip. But the character became so popular that Al Capp periodically inserted him into the ongoing adventures. He had to--- the only thing the "real" character Li'l Abner ever read was the "comical strip" character Fearless Fosdick, whom Abner referred to reverentially as "mah ideel!"

    This volume collects five complete Fosdick stories: "Anyface" (1947), "The Case of the Poisoned Beans" (1954), "Sidney the Crooked Parrot," "The Case of the Atom Bum" (1951) and "The Chippendale Chair" (1948). Introduction by then Dick Tracy writer Max Allan Collins. The daily strip format is reconfigured to fit the 8.5" x 11" soft cover book. 128 pages.

    Out of print.
