    Description

    Alex Raymond Flash Gordon Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 12-8-35 (King Features, 1935). Alex Raymond was a master draftsman and a remarkable storyteller -- universally celebrated as one of the finest comic strip artists ever to touch pen and brush to paper. Flash Gordon was created in an attempt to cash in on the success of Buck Rogers, and it soon outpaced its 25th-century rival, becoming an even bigger and longer-lasting strip. This Sunday, only the second from this peak-period year that we have offered to date, measures approximately 25" x 20". This piece required a significant amount of professional restoration, notably a conserved tear running vertically through the entire art. There is also a long horizontal crease half way down the art. There are also four areas that have been filled in, replaced, and redrawn. The art has been replaced at the upper left (in an approximately 1.5" x 4" section) and at the lower right (in an approximately a .5" x .5" section). The other restored/replaced areas are found in the paper margins, and as such, don't affect image area. After the professional restoration this awesome episode still has plenty of eye-appeal, and presents in Very Good condition.
