Of course lots of preliminary design went into the run of the comic strip.  The gallery below includes concept work by Beardsley, Downing and Potter.

  1. Good eye! Yeah, when you’re designing simple military-style patches with a small number of colors (red, white, blue, gold) and graphic elements (stars), you’re going to see similarities with real-world things eventually. 🙂 The similarity is unintentional.

    But wait. The 1st Marine Division battle blaze was designed in 1943, whereas the Daedalus II ship badge was designed in 1926… 😉
