    Phil Mendez - Three Mouseketeers #4 Cover Original Art (DC, 1970). Minus, Patsy, and Fatsy, the Captain, are about to be cornered by a kitty cat party-crasher. Phil Mendez's cover art captures the frolicsome good fun of Sheldon Mayer's mirthful mousketeers. While Shelly first developed his rodent trio back in 1944 as a strip in Funny Stuff, the Three Mouseketeers didn't receive their own title until 1956. The fondly remembered feature was revived briefly in 1970 -71 for seven issues. In addition to the original art, this lot also includes the hand painted color guide, a cover printer's proof, and a copy of the comic book! The image area of the cover art is 10" x 15". The image has been pasted up using three elements: the title logo; the cat, Minus, and Patsy; and Fatsy and the base of the egg-beater. The price, month, and issue number stats have slipped off the art; otherwise it is in Excellent condition. It will be mighty hard to beat this cover for Bronze Age DC fun!
