Doug Wildey Comico promotional poster
(B&W images and color autograph image courtesy Gary Karpinski)
An image of part of this poster showing
an autograph signed by Doug Wildey during a comic book convention in Erie, Pa., in
1986 for Gary Karpinski.
This poster was used to promote the upcoming
comic book series from Comico, as well as the new Jonny Quest show (the
infamous "second season"). Right above the large "ON SALE IN JUNE" letters, the
poster indicates that originally the comic book series (which eventually went to
31 issues, plus a number of specials) was being planned as a 12-issue run. The series
proved to be so popular, that it was held over. Unfortunately, the TV show did not
do nearly as well, as was cancelled after only 13 installments.
Want to make your own poster? If you have a color ink-jet or laser printer, you
can download the following four files, unzip them, and print! Then match the images
(there are some areas of overlap, which should make matching easier), tape or glue
the images together, and...voila! Your very own poster! Using high-quality glossy
photo paper produces a VERY nice result, but even plain paper will make a tolerable
Thanks to Gary Karpinski for the great scans to make this possible!
Thanks to "an anonymous Jonny Quest fan", you can now download

The fan writes: "I assembled a single jpeg image of Doug Wildey's 'The Youngest
American Hero' poster from the four separate files you so kindly provide. After
placing the quadrants I cleaned-up the sharp edges (where the images overlap) and
filled-in some missing border material. Some folks might be interested in a single
image file of the poster, especially if they have access to a large format printer."
