    Description

    Bill Elder Panic #8 Story Page 5 Alley Oop Parody Original Art (EC, 1955). From the Stone-Age-Type Comic Strips Dept.: Panic was MAD's younger brother and the family resemblance was very strong. This story was so stuffed full of running gags that we are surprised it didn't run off the page! Bill Elder (aka Will Elder), loved making sure every single panel had a sight gag in it if at all possible. As a result, there are great throw-away gags such as the "Full of Bullova" watch in Panel 5, and the pinball machines in Panel 6. The page was crafted twice-up scale in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 13" x 18". There are text correction paste-ups in two panels. Overall the lightly toned page is in Excellent condition.
