You are bidding on the exceedingly rare 1976 King Portfolio One. In it, Russ Cochran showcases classic comic strip pages in a huge, 18-inch page format that brings you up-close and personal with every stroke of the artists' renderings, with brilliant black-and-white contrast.


It contains a foreword by Russ Cochran, who discusses the glory days of Sunday comics in the 1930s. This portfolio is filled with a variety of classic comics, such as:


Jungle Jim by Alex Raymond
Flash Gordon by Alex Raymond
Red Barry by Will Gould
Polly and Her Pals by Cliff Sterrett
Krazy Kat by George Herriman
Mandrake the Magician by Lee Falk & Phil Davis
Prince Valiant by Harold R. Foster

The brief epiloge on the final page reads:



Americans cannot claim to have painted the greatest paintings or composed the greatest classical music, but in the medium of comic art, the American comic artists led the world. And at the head of the parade, with the brightest stars of all, was the King Features crew of the 1930s. Here is their work, at its zenith.

The paper covers have endured some wear and tear, some yellowing and edgewear, but the large glossy pages and the beautiful artwork thereupon is in excellent shape.
