Abner: The 1953 Dailies" by Kitchen Sink Press.
(note from the editor, this does not sound like a transformation,
and will probably not be included in the list) newspaper comic
strip 4/6/53 to 7/9/53. Li'l Abner Yokum becomes a female, at least
on paper. A law is enacted in Lower Slobbovia making Abner a
Slobbovian citizen and declaring him to be female. Renamed Liddle
Anya, he spends the next three months in drag adapting to being
female because he/she "obeys all laws, no matter how humiliating."
This includes taking a job as sparring partner for gorgeous lady
wrestler Tara Leggoff, who helps Anya with her makeup, loans
clothes, and takes on a double date with two Slobbovian sailors
(Pop Ivan and Sid Seasick). Anya eventually engages in a wrestling
match with Tara for the right to marry General Bullmoose's son
Weakfish. Abner becomes male again when rebels overthrow the
Slobbovian government and repeal all laws.
