Notes of Interest:
Another beautiful piece taken from the collection of Tim Perkins – Tim was the inker of this story page, even though the credits when it was published erroneously listed Jim Mooney as the penciller and Dave Harword as the inker! This page is the last of six showcased in this gallery that make up the complete story “Wilykat’s Wish part 3”, which featured in Marvel UK’s ThunderCats Issue #81. Interestingly, this story appeared during a short-lived period where the comic was actually titled ThunderCats and Galaxy Rangers, due to the prominant inclusion of a back-up strip featuring other 1980s cartoon heroes, the Galaxy Rangers! For the completed version of this particular page, along with the addition of colour, captions and word balloons, a decorative banner containing the ThunderCats insignia and spanning the width of the page would be added to the bottom of the page, proclaiming what readers could expect to see in the next issue. This is something that would appear on the final story page in every issue of the UK ThunderCats comic. Once again, Tim Perkins was kind enough to send us a good-sized scan of this piece – click on the image above to take you to a larger version!
