    Dick Calkins Buck Rogers #90 Daily Comic Strip Original Art (John F. Dille Co., 1945). One of the more thrilling Buck Rogers sequences is the "Explosive Light" story, which ran from February into June of 1945. The present episode, "Big Job Ahead" finds time-traveling spaceman Rogers plotting to turn a barrage of light-bombs against enemy forces. Signed in the upper margin. On the reverse, there's the beginning of a strip layout, with partial hand-lettering. Ink and Zipatone over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 18" x 5". Pronounced toning and scuffing, and a vertical crease at midpoint. Good condition.
