    Alex Raymond Rip Kirby Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 6-4-46 (King Features Syndicate, 1946). Early in the run, three months since the launching of the hit feature, sleuth Rip Kirby calls out an indignant professor whose dangerous experimental formula has affected his students. Neither party will give in -- but Kirby calls for the egghead's arrest "until he's ready to talk!" A distracted police chief appears slow to act -- a terrific example of Raymond's ability to enhance the spoken word with expressive body language. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 19.75" x 6". Light blue over-pencilling to define areas to be shaded in the engraving process. Very light toning, with marginal handling wear and scuffing. Image area itself is in Excellent condition. From the Alex Raymond Family Collection.

    More Information: EDIT: Added provenance From the Alex Raymond Family Collection.
