Reading Room PANIC "What to Do with Ebbet's Field?"

As I had mentioned previously, baseball's Dodgers had left Brooklyn for Los Angeles in 1957...
...leaving an empty stadium in the heart of the Borough of Kings!
This never-reprinted strip from Panic Publications' Panic #1 (1958) takes the "Man on the Street" skit from then-popular The Steve Allen Show (featuring Don Knotts, Tom Poston, and Louie Nye) and uses it to answer the question!
(You can read about Ebbets [no apostrophe] Field's fate HERE.)
As to who wrote and drew the four-pager...we have no idea!
Only Publisher Robert Farrell and Editor/Art Director Bob Powell used their own names on the masthead!
Panic survived longer than most other MAD clones, running nine issues from 1958 to 1966.
