''Rip Kirby'' was created by Alex Raymond, who was also the original creator of the ''FlashGordon'' comic strip. When he returned from serving in WorldWarTwo, he discovered that the syndicate had [[ExecutiveMeddling given that strip to another artist]] and wouldn't let Mr. Raymond take it back. As a consolation prize, they offered a much better financial deal if Mr. Raymond could come up with a new strip for them. After some consultation with the editorial staff, Mr. Raymond chose to make a detective strip, featuring a man who was a combination of cerebral and hardboiled, while also being very modern and "cool".
