    Alex Raymond - Flash Gordon with Jungle Jim Topper Sunday Comic Strip Original Art, dated 11-23-41 (King Features Syndicate, 1941). Jungle Jim and Captain Kenedy are on a rescue mission, sailing to the aid of two lovely damsels in distress, Lil and Kitty. This Jim topper measures an overall 7.25" x 17", while the image area is 7" x 15.75". The title stat is a replacement. The lower portion of this set is the matching Flash Gordon Sunday. Flash has returned to earth from Mongo, just in time to help the U.S.A. in its coming battle against the Axis. The Admiral Krogoff served as an allegory for the German threat; just two weeks after this Sunday appeared, Japan would attack Pearl Harbor, and there would be no need for such softened rhetoric. Alex Raymond's use of a "feathered" brush line is flawless on this strip. The overall size of the paper measures 16.25" x 13.25", and the condition of both pieces of art is Excellent. These strips show the all-out effort to win the looming World War II, everyone pitched in to serve their country, even the comic book and newspaper strip heroes.
