    Four Color #25 Andy Panda - File Copy (Dell, 1943) CGC VF- 7.5 Cream to off-white pages. Walter Lantz created this adorable character in 1939, when a panda bear at the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago made national headlines. First appearing in animated cartoons, Andy made the leap to comic books with this issue. Andy's first comic adventures (including the one in this issue) took place in the world of real people, and was continued for a time in a charming and well-remembered series that originally ran in New Funnies. In time Andy was paired with Charlie Chicken, with somewhat more mundane stories resulting. This attractive copy is among the last of the Western Publishing file copies to escape into the collector's market. Don't let this cute little guy slip past you! Overstreet 2005 VF 8.0 value = $405. CGC census, 3/05: 1 in 7.5, 1 higher. From the Random House Archives.
