    John Rosenberger Adventures of the Jaguar #1 Complete 9-page Origin Story Original Art (Archie, 1961). Famed Zoologist Ralph Hardy discovers a magical belt inside the ruins of an Incan temple that, when worn, transform him from mustache-wearing explorer to clean-shaven superhero with the power of all animals magnified, in this nine-page introductory tale. The crisp art style is from the co-creator (with Bob Bernstein) of the character for the Archie Adventure Series line, artist John Rosenberger, a graduate of the Pratt Institute. Each page has an image area of approximately 12" x 17.5". The first page has a small tear along the right side of the board, but includes the original logo stat. Overall, the pages average in Very Good condition. Silver Age origin story original art doesn't turn up often, especially not complete stories, so be sure to check this one out!
