    Description

    Alex Raymond Flash Gordon et Jungle Jim Sunday Strip Original daté 08-12-40 (King Features Syndicate, 1940). Le premier arc narratif de la célèbre série de la bande dessinée d'Alex Raymond et Don Moore réussi à refléter le plus fidèlement possible les événements sur Terre sans en sacrifier la valeur narrative du divertissement. Leur travail, sans égal, resté, à ce jour, fondamental dans les annales de l'histoire, allait influencer Star Wars ainsi que d'innombrables autres domaines. Cet exemple de Sunday Comics, daté du 08/12/1940, tiré de l'arc narratif « The Power Men of Mongo » nous montre Flash ayant atteint les portes du « camp de concentration » de Ming pour tenter de sauver Zarkov et les autres prisonniers politiques au sein du camp. Bulon est sur le point d'assassiner Flash lorsqu'il est capturé par les gardes de Ming. Flash s'échappe de justesse en sauvant sa vie. Magnifiquement représentée, nous voyons Dale se préparant à sauver Flash, frappant Bulon une fois de plus qui s'écroule, alors que Flash lutte pour se sortir de la pelle d'une grue de laquelle il bondit finalement avec succès, Dale et Flash sont une fois de plus réunis. Encre de Chine sur crayon graphite sur deux cartons Bristol séparés avec une superficie d'image combinée de 61 x 75 cm. Légèrement teinte. En Excellente Condition. De la Collection Familiale Alex Raymond.
    Alex Raymond Flash Gordon and Jungle Jim Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 8-12-40 (King Features Syndicate, 1940). The first great story arc in the strip's celebrated run with Alex Raymond and Don Moore succeeded in mirroring the events on Earth as closely as possible without sacrificing entertainment value. Their work remains seminal in the annals of history and is without equal, going on to influence Star Wars and countless other properties. In this Sunday example, dated, 12/8/1940, from the story arc "The Power Men of Mongo" gives us Flash having reached the gates of Ming's "concentration camp" in an attempt to rescue Zarkov and the other political prisoners within the camp. Bulon is about to murder Flash when he is captured by Ming's guards. Flash barely escapes with his life. Rendered beautifully, we see Dale getting ready to rescue Flash, once more, she clobbers Bulon, and he comes crashing down, while Flash is struggling to get out of the scoop of a crane, and he successfully scrambles out of the scoop and Dale and Flash are reunited once more. Rendered in ink with red ink key lines over graphite on two separate Bristol boards with a combined image area of 24" x 29.5". Lightly toned. In Excellent condition. From the Alex Raymond Family Collection.
