Bruce Gentry was an aviation adventure comic strip by Ray Bailey, distributed by the Post-Hall Syndicate. It debuted March 25, 1945, and by July the strip had expanded to 35 newspapers.
Comic strip historian Coulton Waugh called Bailey’s Bruce Gentry a “job of very high technical skill.” He further credited the artist with mastery of “exact perspective, high flexibility of expression and a feeling for drama.” Despite such high praise near the time of its inception, the Bruce Gentry series was not a long-term success. It ended January 6, 1951 with Gentry marrying his sweetheart Cleo Patric.
