Alex Raymond excelled in dynamic action illustration
I immediately fell in love with Alex Raymond’s art when first exposed to it. As a film noir and detective fiction fan, I discovered that he illustrated a comic strip called Rip Kirby, with the script by Dashiell Hammett (The Maltese Falcon and Thin Man author).
After Raymond’s death, the strip continued with other artists and changed to Secret Agent X-9.
Raymond made his biggest splash as the originator (author and artist) of Flash Gordon. Awesome stuff and influential to this day.
Here you go — enjoy Alex Raymond.
