Format: Paperback
Recently, I reviewed a collection of Frank Godwin's comic strip Connie. It ran from 1927 to 1944 but because it was distributed by a small syndicate, Connie is better known to comics historians than the general public. In his World Encyclopedia of Comics Maurice Horn gives it great praise, saying "a close study of Connie reveals it as one of the most fascinating strips of the era." Ron Goulart, in his Encyclopedia of American Comics, is a bit more critical, noting that "Frank Godwin was an impressive illustrator, a master draftsman, and a wizard with the pen, but his plots and dialogue never came near to equaling his drawing." The earlier volume I reviewed was from 1930. The Menace of Mo Tung, published by the Pacific Comics Club, is from 1937-38, near what might be seen as the strip's peak. I would not be surprised if Frank Godwin had noted the success of Milton Caniff's Terry and the Pirates and decided that it was time to send his heroine on an adventure in China. Connie Kurridge receives a message from an old school friend, Madge Layton. Madge's father is working on an experimental airplane engine but he is getting threatening letters and crucial parts of the engine are suddenly missing. Connie investigates and soon finds herself matching wits with a sinister fellow named Mo Tung, who wants that engine. Before long, Connie's skills as an aviator are put to the test as she has to chase Mo Tung's plane and then has to disguise herself on a ship heading to China in the company of a reporter named Bruce Clark. In China, they are captured by Mo Tung. Before the volume ends, there is an escape attempt and Connie and Bruce must face Japanese planes, Mongolian bandits and a shadowy group plotting to overthrow the Russian government.Read more ›
