Hal Forrest pencils, inks and signed; 03/16/30; image size 22" x 28.25"
Tailspin Tommy was the first comic strip to cash in on America's obsession with aviation in the early part of the 20th century, thanks in no small part to the fervor surrounding Charles Lindbergh, many other heroic flyers would follow in the funny pages and comic books but Tailspin Tommy was the first, and many consider the best, of the airborne heroes to make a mark on comic readers.

This entry in the series shows Tommy meeting one of his idols, Inspector McDowall of the RCMP who hires the pilot to ferry him to his ranch in the Canadian wilderness. The lush, flowing penmanship of Hal Forrest is on display on this engaging strip, which is a large piece of art, that has been hand painted with brilliant watercolors and was signed by Forrest.

Hal Forrest pencils, inks and signed; colored by unknown artist; 1/22/1932; image size 22" x 29"
Tailspin Tommy was the first comic strip to cash in on America's obsession with aviation in the early part of the 20th century, thanks in no small part to the fervor surrounding Charles Lindbergh, many other heroic flyers would follow in the funny pages and comic books but Tailspin Tommy was the first, and many consider the best, of the airborne heroes to make a mark on comic readers.

In this episode of Tailspin Tommy, the titular hero and his pal Skeets have to climb out on the exterior of a dirigible to repair a fin that was damaged by a scrape with a mountain during a bout of inclement weather. The attempted daredevil mending job takes a bad turn as Skeets tumbles off the airship and hangs by a safety rope. Forrest was equally deft at handling action scenes as he was with conversational plot-driven fare, and his work on this page is exceptional. The piece is large format and has been hand colored by an unknown artist.

Hal Forrest pencils, inks and signed; colored by unknown artist; c. 1930s; image size 22" x 29"
Tailspin Tommy was the first comic strip to cash in on America's obsession with aviation in the early part of the 20th century, thanks in no small part to the fervor surrounding Charles Lindbergh, many other heroic flyers would follow in the funny pages and comic books but Tailspin Tommy was the first, and many consider the best, of the airborne heroes to make a mark on comic readers.

In this action-packed sequence, Tommy and Skeeter do battle with an enraged polar bear after they made an emergency landing on an ice floe. Hal Forrest was a versatile artist, able to portray hard-boiled action and romantic plots with the same amount of gravitas, and this page is filled to the brim with some serious survival exploits as the two aviators are pitched in a life or death battle with the humongous carnivore. The page is hand painted by an unknown artist and signed by Hal Forrest.
