    Val Mayerik and Vince Colletta Creatures on the Loose #22 Complete 15-Page Thongor Story Original Art (Marvel, 1973). The first comic book appearance of Thongor, and just the third Marvel story ever drawn by Mayerik. Thongor of Lemuria, created by Lin Carter, debuted on paperback racks in the mid-60s and combined elements of Robert E. Howard's Conan and Edgar Rice Burroughs' John Carter. This particular story has action, sorcery, and a sexy female to boot! Each page has an image area of 10" x 15". Typical production staining and handling wear on all pages, and a few pages have stripped-in corrections sealed with tape on the backs. The ninth page is missing a corrected text box in the first panel as well as one word balloon. One figure on the tenth page is a stat, but the original art is beneath it. Note that the pages have three different sets of numbers with gaps in the sequence, however we checked the published comic to confirm that this is the complete story. Very Good condition.
