American Mythology's Pink Panther #1 Free Comic Book Day 2016 (I just found out!)

Was just playing catch-up (what else is new?), and was surveying the 2016 Free Comic Book Day master list (it's this Saturday, May 7th), just about to conclude that there was nothing to my interest or worth my while this year, when "AMERICAN MYTHOLOGY| THE PINK PANTHER FCBD 2016 EDITION" caught my eye. Looked it up, and lo and behold, it's not a new itinerant of the live-action feature film-based franchise, but the honest-to-goodness, animated Pink Panther! Per this Bleeding Cool article, with this Free Comic Book Day issuing of issue #1, American Mythology Press is launching an ongoing Pink Panther!

I'm partial to this very DePatie-Freleng-esque Ant and the Aardvark cover:

Hopefully, come this Saturday, I'll luck out, and my dealer will have that last one. If not, I'll take what they have, and get my preferred one somewhere online afterward!


Some new, timely Disney comic reviews are coming -- well, there's some I really want to do, anyway!

  1. DePatie-Freling's stable is getting a comeback of sorts this year: "Tijuana Toads", "The Ant and The Aardvark", "Crazylegs Crane" "The Inspector" and "Mister Jaws" are coming soon to DVD/Blu Ray. AND there's a CG/live-action Pink Panther film that Julie Andrews is producing. I'm hoping this FCBD offering is a preview of the 1st issue and not entirely exclusive material, since I have found a lot of offerings harder to find with each new year.

  2. 'rehab: Great news about the home media releases!

    Tell me about it -- I'm not looking forward to arriving at the comics shop tomorrow morning only to find this book not among their offerings. I intend to report back here on the outcome!

  3. Did ya get the comic? I did and I enjoyed it very much.

    1. Clapton: I did, but haven't had a chance to read it yet. Will do so soon, and post some comments on it. Glad to hear good stuff!
