    Joe Messerli The Pink Panther #75 Near-Complete Issue including Cover Original Art Group of 23 (Western/Whitman Publ.,1980). For a character who had originated in a sophisticated crime-caper movie, the Pink Panther proved surprisingly effective as a comics-and-storybooks figure for little kids. This near-complete issue's worth of originals contains key pages from such stories as "Pink Spotter" (UFO-ology), "Pink Escape" (at the zoo), and "Piggy Pink" (down on the farm). The cover art is a simple outline on vellum, designed to be finished out in the color-engraving process. The interiors consist of ink over blue pencil on Bristol board. Dimensions, 10" x 15" to 12.25" x 20.25". Accompanied by an intact reading copy of the published work. There is a rip in the top edge of Page 1, just above the paste-up stat logo. Just below the hand-lettered story title "Pink Spotter" is a spot that is slightly sticky from tape residue.
    The cover art is in Very Good condition, and all pages Very Good to Excellent, most in Excellent.
