Fantastic piece, wow, thanks for sharing!!
This is one of the first sunday strips done 100% by Kirby after Wood left the strip. At this age, Kirby still cared about the strip and he tried his best to mimic Wood's style till he found a replacement.
The last couple of panels of the Scrapbook were removed in the vertical format, as seen in this scan from the Pure Imagination book. The extra panel to add in the vertical strips is missing above.
This is the restored color guide attributed to Kirby, coming direcly from his files since I bought it directly to Jeremy, his grandson.
