In April 1972, Gold Key Comics launched a comic adaptation of the Harlem Globetrotters animated series; their first comic book appearance was in issue #8 of Gold Key’s Hanna-Barbera Fun-In, published in July 1971.
Several stories in early issues were based on episodes of the TV show. The comic series lasted for 4 years and 12 issues through January 1975.
The Museum of UnCut Funk has recently acquired the entire series of the Gold Key Harlem Globetrotter comic books as a part of it’s Black Comic Book Collection.
