Trump Reading Room LOOIE LAZYBONES "There's No Feud Like an Old Feud!"

Our story opens as we gaze upon a life-size statue of one of Don the Con's "deplorables"... rendered by the legendary Frank Frazetta!
Created in 1943, Looie Lazybones floated around the Nedor Comics line as a "filler" strip until settling down in Thrilling Comics as of #56 (1946).
Young up-and-comer Frank Frazetta took over the art as of this issue, #67 (1948) bringing it amazingly-close in visual style to the strip's "inspiration", Al Capp's Li'l Abner, which had already become a media sensation, with a radio show, feature film and tons of merchandising!
So close, in fact, that Capp hired Frazetta to "ghost" Li'l Abner in 1954!
BTW, the writer is unknown.
