Connie by Frank Godwin (0320-) 1st Sunday November 13, 1927, 1st Daily May 13, 1929 - The popularity of Connie in collectorís circles is directly attributable to the talent of the stripís creator Frank Godwin. Godwin is acknowledged to be not only a wonderful cartoonist but as one of Americaís great artists,  a rare height that few professionals reach.  Connie began in 1927 as one of the typical Flapper strips of the roaring 20ís. The strip would evolve into an adventure strip in the early 30ís as the depression forced many of the flappers to get a job. The big draw for collectorís would come in the mid-to-late 30ís when the strip dabbled in science fiction. Throughout all of these eras, the artwork of Frank Godwin was a wonderful constant.  Sales of full-page full-size Connie are brisk, the sci-fi strips of the late 30ís sell at a very high premium and are rarely offered. The dailies are ever rarer and also sell very well. (160)
