    Alex Raymond Jungle Jim Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 5-26-35 (King Features Syndicate, 1935). It's hard to believe now, but for a short time Raymond had two full-page Sundays running concurrently when Flash Gordon and companion "topper" strip Jungle Jim each went to a full page in February, 1935. About four months later, the two strips merged back into a single page, but oh what wonderful delights the newspaper Sunday Comics section held during that brief time. But originals from that brief period almost never change hands. Here, after escaping from the Sacred Mountain, Joan finally reunites with Jim. The art is in ink over graphite on board, with an approximate image area of 15.5" x 24"; it's matted and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 23" x 32.5". Other than a few very minor spots of discoloration and a partially torn-off syndicate strip paste-up, the page is in Excellent condition. Full-page Jungle Jim examples are practically impossible to track down, but here one is, in all its magnificent splendor. Let's see a show of hands -- who wants it?
