    Description

    Alex Raymond Flash Gordon Sunday Comic Strip with Matching Jungle Jim Topper Original Art dated 9-22-40 (King Features Syndicate, 1940). One of the finest comic strip artists ever to touch pen to paper, Alex Raymond was a master draftsman and a remarkable storyteller. Created in an attempt to cash in on the success of Buck Rogers, Raymond's Flash Gordon soon outpaced its 25th-century rival, becoming an even bigger, and longer-lasting, strip. Raymond also created Jungle Jim, which eventually ran as a "topper" to the Flash Gordon strip. Finding two matching pieces, as is the case here, is extra-desirable, making this an especially enticing offering for any strip fan. The two features have a combined image area of 20" x 26", and the piece has been matted and framed to an overall size of 26" x 32". Aside from some overall aging and a missing Jungle Jim logo, the art is in Excellent condition.
