Cisco Kid comic by Jose Luis Salinas



I just received this beautiful original of Jose Luis Salinas's Cisco Kid daily comic from January 10,1952.

Jose Luis Salinas began his career in art in 1929, working for some of Argentina's biggest agencies. He dabbled with sequential art and in 1936 created his first successful comic series, 'Hernan el Corsario', which appeared in the pages of Patoruzu. This was followed by a number of other series that continued through World Was II. In 1949 Salinas moved to the United States and began working for the King Features syndicate doing odd jobs until 1951 when he was asked to illustrate the newspaper strip of inspired by O'Henry's Cisco Kid. When that strip ended in 1968, Salinas returned to Argentina and focused on painting and illustrations. His last work in comics came in 1971 when he drew the Gunner strip.
