Karl May / Bessy - Originele pagina - Gebruikt voor Duitse Bessy en Karl May - (1978/1985)
Studio Vandersteen - Very fine - 1 Original artwork

A very nice page from Karl May.
With Old Shatterhand.

When the page is held against the light, it reveals Andy from Bessy... these stories were used for the German and Dutch series.
The main character was replaced by pasting an illustration over him.

This page is from a Karl May album, most likely between volumes 75-87.

The upper right reads BD 617; which is “Bessy Duitsland” (Bessy Germany).
In other words, the story was made for the German market first.

Both the Dutch Bessy working title and the German publication are unknown, but it was likely made in the period when BD 616 (De gouden madonna / Bastei #634 Schatzräuber der heißen Grenze) and BD 619 (De gebiedsroof / Bastei #635 Häuptling Schneller Hirsch in Not) appeared (1978).

A very original item!
