LI'l Abner By Frank Frazetta

For a time, Frank Frazetta drew the comic strip "Li'l Abner"



 
 
And in this particular strip, he drew Marilyn Monroe.

 
 
Marilyn Monroe used to turn up a lot in comics. You'd see her in things like MAD back then. And sometimes they'd just draw a girl that looked like her without saying it was actually her.
 
 
 
They did that with Bettie Page, too.
 
 
Frazetta sometimes drew himself into the Li'l Abner strip as well:
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
Frazetta's girls were distinctively different from Al Capp's:
 
 
 
Al Capp drew girls with broad shoulders and narrow hips, something you see a lot in old comics. Frazetta drew girls with a big "Bottom".  He actually was much better at drawing girls than Al Capp.  
 
 
 
 
Although I think that one looks a little funny.
