Day 17 features just two characters, connected by an unusual relationship. One is a fictional character in the universe of the other.
Al Capp's Li'l Abner satirized many aspects of American culture. fashion, and politics. In 1942 he introduced "Fearless Fosdick," a comic strip that Li'l Abner read. The strip was a parody of "Dick Tracy," and held a fun house mirror up to many of the tropes of Chester Gould's strip. Of course, Fosdick was as incompetent as Tracy was masterful in crime detection -- as this sequence illustrates.
