    Description

    Alex Raymond Flash Gordon Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 7-20-41 (King Features Syndicate, 1941). A significant World War II example, dating from months before the US entry into the war. Raymond's famous space explorer, Flash Gordon, is earthbound in this stellar Sunday spread. Flash has returned from the Planet Mongo to enlist in the armed forces -- only to find himself under military arrest as a suspected Fifth Column agent. Raymond's characteristically strong radial composition captures the tensions of the moment to near-perfection, with varying close-up and medium-shot panels in contrast with one panoramic seascape to establish the setting. Few other artists could make the ocean look so turbulent with just a brushful of ink. Ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 16" x 13". Light toning and marginal push-pin punctures. Excellent condition. From A Collection of Great Cartoonists and Illustrators.
