    Alex Raymond Secret Agent X-9 Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 11-22-34 (King Features Syndicate, 1934). X-9 was an agent so secret that even we, the readers, for years, never knew his true name, country of origin, or even what agency he worked for. Originally written and created by noted mystery author Dashiell Hammett (best known for crime noir novels such as The Maltese Falcon, The Thin Man, and The Glass Key), the strip boasted some of the best art on the comics page. This hard-hitting, unusually western-themed daily is a real beauty, and one can detect the influence of pulp magazine illustrator Matt Clark on Alex Raymond's drybrush inking technique. This ink and blue pencil on Bristol daily has an image area of 25" x 5.5", with slight edge wear and toning; otherwise, in Excellent condition.
