    Western Publishing Staff Artist - Underdog Cover Original Art Group (Gold Key, 1975). There's no need to fear -- Underdog is here! Disguised as humble, loveable Shoeshine Boy, Underdog was a long-running favorite Saturday morning cartoon, and a comic book series for a number of different companies. These four covers are from the Gold Key run that began early in 1975; we've definitely identified issue #2 and 3, and feel certain the others are # 1 and 4. At any rate, they all are fun items, featuring Underdog, Sweet Polly Purebred, and villainous Simon Bar Sinister and his henchmen Cad. The pieces range in size from 10.25" x 13.25" to 11.75" x 17". All are in Excellent condition; the smaller item is drawn on vellum and attached to illustration board while the others are all on bristol. From the Random House Archives.
