    Li'l Abner Joins the Navy (1950) is a Naval recruitment giveaway published by Toby Press. In this comic, Al Capp makes an appearance when a young fellow from Dogpatch named Drawingboard McEasel applies for a job as an artist. McEasel's art is so bad that even a low down varmint like Al Capp won't hire him! This is a wonderful story that blends the real world with the one of Dogpatch. The ultimate concern is the good of the Navy. While the agenda seems to be clear, the comic is still a lot of fun as Abner and the rest interact with the real world. A nice example of the artistry and vision of Al Capp. His dialogue is, as always, priceless.
