    Description

    Otto Messmer and Joe Oriolo Felix the Cat #62 Near Complete Issue Original Art (Harvey, 1955). Almost the entire contents of all story art for the entire issue! And what an issue to have... the very first Harvey Comics issue. Art on these stories was completed by Otto Messmer and Joe Oriolo, with Oriolo doing the bulk of the work. The only missing art pages are the two text pieces (with the Fearless Fosdick strip) and the Inky story on page 29. So that is 21 pages of Felix, Kitty, Julius, Inky, and Dinky. The image area is 12" x 18" on each page. There was a lot of paste-up in some stories, to change human heads to animal characters instead. Some of these paste-ups are coming loose, a very few are missing. The pages have wear and handling on them, overall they are in Very Good condition. The lot also comes with a copy of the comic book.
