These never-before-collected strips represent an essential transition point that would forever change the direction of adventure comics. Lyman Young’s Tim Tyler’s Luck was a successful series set in exotic locales before Alex Raymond signed on as Young’s assistant. It’s in these 1932-1933 strips, as Raymond assumed greater and greater responsibility for the drawing, that he developed the prototypes for Flash Gordon, Dale Arden, and Jungle Jim, and the style for which he became famous a year later.
