The Panther's Finest

Kirby's story of the Panther and the Collectors, which ran from issue 1 through issue 7 of this series, was unquestionably the best Black Panther story arc ever written. Princess Zanda and Mr. Little were superb supporting characters and the entire adventure was loaded with imagination and excitement from beginning to end.

I sometimes wonder if the idea for the super-avaricious Collectors was inspired by Kirby's observations of comic book fans and their often unhealthy collecting mania, which was already extreme in those days and has only grown worse in the ensuing years.
