Born today Alex Raymond 

Alex Raymond (2 October 1909 – 6 September 1956) was one of the most influential American newspaper comic artists of all time. He is widely praised for his realism, beautiful and elegant depictions of women and clever use of black and white. With his space opera ‘Flash Gordon’ (1934) he redefined the science fiction genre, while his post-war detective strip ‘Rip Kirby’ (1946) stood out for its contemporary realism and cosmopolitan look and feel. Raymond’s other (co-)creations ‘Secret Agent X-9’ (1934) and ‘Jungle Jim’ (1934) have also become classics.

Despite his relatively short career – Raymond died in a car crash at age 45 – he has left a lasting mark on comic book realism, together with his contemporaries Hal Foster, Milton Caniff and Burne Hogarth.
