Don Winslow of the Navy  by Frank V Martinek (0450-) 1st Appearance March 5, 1934 - Originally created as a Naval Recruiting Device by Lt. Frank Martinek of Naval Intelligence, Don Winslow had an impressive 20+ year run in the funnies.  The strip held a nice niche on the comics pages and took full advantage of it's status as a US Government Accepted Military strip during the ensuing World War II years.  This niche was enhanced by appearances in other media including big little books and movie serials.   Don Winslow worked for Naval Intelligence just like his creator.  He would fight evil nemises bent on world domination throughout the lifetime of the strip.  His partner, Red Pennington was usually at his side helping out.  The market for Don Winslow is moderate.   Good runs can be found at average prices for that era.   The strip often shared a page with another Martinek creation 'Bos'n Hal'.  Uncut Fulls with both are collectably the best of these.  Dailies sell about as well as sundays.
