    Description

    Alex Raymond Rip Kirby Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 4-1-54 (King Features, 1954). This daily, titled on the back of the artboard "Visibility Zero," shows an unusual amount of action and excitement for a Rip Kirby strip. That's not to say Alex Raymond's classic detective strip wasn't a great read, full of dynamic, stylized artwork -- it was; it's just that Raymond normally preferred to eschew the usual fisticuffs for more of an intellectual approach to his storytelling. As always for collectors, the art is the thing, and this one does not disappoint. This superb daily was drawn in ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an approximate image area of 20" x 5.25". The artboard has some handling wear and toning at the edges, but the art itself remains in Excellent condition.
