DescriptionJoe Simon and Neal Adams The Adventures of the Fly #4 Partial Story "Muggsy's Masterpieces" Original Art - Adams' First Comic Book Work (Archie, 1960). Nothing less than the first professional work of Neal Adams is offered here in one remarkable panel at the bottom of page one! Adams recounted the story to interviewer Rik Offenberger as follows: "[At age 17] I started to do samples for Archie and I left my Fly samples there. A couple weeks later when I came in to show my Archie samples, I noticed that the pages were still there, but the bottom panel was cut off of one of my pages. I said, "What happened." They said, "One of the artists did this transition where Tommy Troy turns into the Fly and it's not very good. You did this real nice piece so we'll use that, if it's ok." I said, "That's great. That's terrific."
This incomplete story is missing only page 6. Beyond the Adams panel, several pages have tipped-in original art panels and paste-ups. The image areas measure 12" x 17.5" and the art is in Good condition. From the Joe Simon Estate.
