US sf COMIC strip, written and drawn by Frank Godwin (1889-1959) from its beginnings in 1927 until 1944, when it was terminated after several years of dwindling success. The early years of the strip, which featured throughout the madcap adventures of its eponymous flapper heroine, were relatively mundane, but by the mid-1930s Connie had become involved in LOST-WORLDS tales, encounters with mad SCIENTISTS, interplanetary missions and TIME TRAVEL. Godwin was not much admired for his writing, but his complex illustrations, both painterly and draughtsmanlike, made the strip memorable.
