    Description

    Frank Godwin Connie Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 10-4-40 (Ledger, 1940). A very large piece, over two feet in width, from an age when comic strips ran big and were drawn even bigger. Not only did Godwin help to introduce a realistic illustrative style to the funnypapers (beginning in the 1920s) -- he also created Connie Kurridge (pronounced "courage") as the first female action hero in American comics, way ahead of Brenda Starr, Sheena, and Wonder Woman. This striking episode finds Connie in a Flash Gordon-style outer-space setting. Ink over graphite on Bristol board, with Zipatone shading over blue pencil, and an image area of 27.5" x 6.5". Light toning, otherwise, Excellent condition. From A Collection of Great Cartoonists and Illustrators.
