Seller: srtizstik (545) 100%, Location: San Diego, California, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 113151446188 Auction item: CISCO KID by Jose Luis Salinas and Rod Reed. 384 Daily comic strips trimmed from daily pages pulled from original newspaper bound volumes. Excellent paper qualities, with very strong inks and printing. Extremely supple paper. During part of 1951 and through 1952 the paper ran two strips in a half page format on Saturdays and reduced the size of several strips in the 3c format. Still very clean and tight printing, the paper also added a Red tone to the dailies which gave them a nice look that would blend the red into a flesh tone at times. There are periods in each title where there might be punch holes in one margin that might enter a panel from time to time. Sometimes the punch hole only invades three margin. Some strips, though, this doesn't occur at all. Again, my count may be off by a strip or two. If there is a huge gaff let me know, but, I'm sure there's not. This period of strips had two great storylines. Dudey Dover story runs into the FRENCH ARTIST story. Beautiful artwork and story-telling. As usual. The strips start out in the 4c size and expand into the 5c size in mid 1953. They stay this size through part of 1954. These strips have no tanning at all. Punch holes are present see pictures for details. Stunning printing and paper quality. The strips are originally printed on a faint creamy green paper stock. The printing strike on all the strips is incredible. I've gotten my own sets together and am selling of the extras. Even with the punch holes, I dig this material.
