This is the original Pen & Ink Wash by Colin Merrett.

Chairman Cherry was a humorous adventure strip drawn by Colin Merrett (also spelled Merritt no-one seems clear) for Princess Tina comic. The issues from 1967 when Princess and Tina merged were published throughout Europe and were highly successful for a number of years. The art here is quite lovely in its original format, "twice-up" from printed size.

Chairman Cherry told the adventures of a former office cleaner who had been gifted the company after she helped the original owner before his death. Cherry was continually making her seconds-in-command Mr Coote and Mr Middle look a bit silly. Please note all boards have folds from either production or storage, otherwise clean and complete.

This one page episode is from issue 148 published 20th December 1969.
