    Description

    Alex Raymond - Original Comic Strip Art for Flash Gordon Sunday dated 2-6-38 (King Features Syndicate, 1938). 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 incredibly rare and desirable, making this a unique and enticing offering for any strip fan. The Jungle Jim topper has an image area of approximately 19.75" x 9.5", while the Flash Gordon piece measures approximately 19.5" x 15.5". Both pieces are in excellent condition; the Flash is signed by Raymond, while the Jungle Jim bears the artist's stylized "R."
