Ella Cinders by Bill Conselman & Charles Plumb (0480-) 1st Daily June 1st, 1925, 1st Sunday January 2, 1927 - Ella Cinders at one time was one of the most popular strips in the comics.  Created by Bill Conselman and Charles Plumb, Ella was an unlikely movie-star who would get into all kinds of fun and adventure.  The high-water mark for the strip came when Children's Book novelist Hardie Gramatky ghosted a long run of great sundays.  Through the mid-1930's,  these sundays were big and colorful with grand layouts and lettering.  Gags gave way to high-adventure continuities which expanded the coverage of the strip.  Unfortunately, the strip took an unimaginative turn as Gramatky moved on to other endeavors and finally the strip died in 1961.  The market for Ella Cinders is somewhat thin.  Because it was very popular in the late 20's early 30's, the strip was carried by plenty of papers, thus supply is ample.  Because it became very ordinary, very fast and for a real long time, it tends to be asked for only by completists.  Regardless, for the price, those 1920-30 fulls are a very good buy.
