Personal Quote:

I decided honestly that comic art is an art form in itself. It reflects the life and times more accurately and actually is more artistic than magazine illustration -- since it is entirely creative. An illustrator works with camera and models; a comic artist begins with a white sheet of paper and dreams up his own business -- he is playwright, director, editor, and artist at once.


Best known for creating the science fiction adventure comic strip "Flash Gordon" for King Features Syndicate in 1934. See more »
