Beautiful Flash Gordon Sunday by Raboy, creator of Captain Marvel Jr. and one of the Golden Age's finest draftsman. Raboy was the perfect artist to take up the reins of Alex Raymond's classic sci-fi space opera. From "The Radioactive Man" story-arc, which ran from 4/1/56 until 6/3/56. Pen and ink. Art is in excellent condition, the logo is stained, which is common on these strips.

Artist Information

Emmanuel "Mac" Raboy was an American comics artist best known for his comic-book work on Fawcett Comics' Captain Marvel Jr. and as the Sunday comic-strip artist of Flash Gordon for more than 20 years. Cartoonist Drew Friedman has stated, "Raboy was an expert technician with pen and brush, and his lush covers are some of the most unusually beautiful ever to grace comic books". Raboy began his art career with the Works Progress Administration during the Great Depression. In the 1940s he began working with the Harry A. Chesler studio of comics artists. Raboy began drawing comic books and gained fame as the illustrator for Captain Marvel, Jr. and the Green Lama. Raboy was a great admirer of Alex Raymond, and "kept a portfolio of Alex Raymond's "Flash Gordon" comics by his side for inspiration and guidance as he worked". In the spring of 1946, King Features hired Raboy to continue the Sunday page adventures of Flash Gordon, which he continued to work on until his death.
