''Rip Kirby'' was created by Alex Raymond, who was also the original creator of the ''ComicStrip/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".
