Ace Drummond by Eddie Rickenbacker (0020-) 1st Appearance February 3, 1935America's romance with airflight started hitting a crescendo with Charles Lindbergh's trans-Atlantic flight in 1927.   That interest was still very high in 1935 when King Features decided to take advantage.   They signed World War I american war-hero Eddie Rickenbacker to put his name on a flight-oriented comic-strip titled Ace Drummond.   Ace Drummond was a young heroic pilot who would use his Barn Pilot skills to take on evil-doers of the skies.   Ace would team with his co-pilot Dinny and his mechanic Jerry on many exciting adventures.    The strip artwork was handled by Clayton Knight,  a war pilot himself.     Knight was very adept at creating visually appealing panoramas of airplanes running through stunts in the skies.   His depictions of classic airplanes were accurate, bordering on the spectacular.   This often covered for Knight's crude human depictions.   The result was a strip which has classic feel and nostalgic adventure tone.   The market for Ace Drummond fairly good.   Collectors like the full-color, full-size pages that ran in most Puck sections.  Note that an affordable version of the first sunday is difficult to find.   It's usually on the reverse side of the very first Mandrake the Magician sunday!
