    Tom Sutton - Original Art for Not Brand Echh #9, Complete 6-page Story, "The Mean Hornet!" (Marvel, 1968). Tom Sutton turns out a hilarious satire of the Green Hornet and late '60s television, in this hysterical send-up, written by Stan Lee and Roy Thomas. The Mean Hornet gets into action and busts through other network program take-offs, such as "Star Trek," "I Spy," Warner Brothers cartoons, "The Lone Ranger," "The Honeymooners," and "I Love Lucy." You'll find cameos by William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Bill Cosby, Robert Culp, Bruce Lee, Al Hirt, Wile E. Coyote, Roadrunner, Desi Arnaz, Lucille Ball, Jackie Gleason and Art Carney. The overall page size on each is 10.5" x 16" with an image area of 10" x 15". The art is lined with lots of written notations by the artist and the editor, which are interesting. Although there is random staining and some slight aging apparent on the pages, the work is still a lot of fun.
