One other thought about Frank Godwin’s “Rusty Ryan” comic strip . . .

In the preceding post, I mentioned that two Rusty Ryan strips were currently listed on eBay.

After comparing the Rusty Ryan listings to a couple of Rusty Riley (original art) listings of the same dealer, I have concluded that the Rusty Ryan strips are somewhat larger than the usual Rusty Riley strip original art.

The Rusty Ryan art is probably close (or identical) in size to the earliest examples of Rusty Riley daily original art.  (Of course, I am talking about overall image sizes.)  In view of this larger size, I would say that the Rusty Ryan strips are marginally more desirable than they would be otherwise.
