Three new LOAC books are now in stores, prompting several people to email me that it’s “Christmas in September!”
Leading off is the first all-John Prentice volume of Rip Kirby. As Tom DeHaven, author of theDerby Dugan trilogy, says, “John Prentice’s work is superb. He’s one of the few cartoonists who took an important strip by a great cartoonist and did it not only justice, but in some ways, was as good as—and in some cases better than—the originator.”
And there’s Steve Canyon as we’ve never seen it before—with the Sundays in color reproduced from Caniff’s own proofs.
Finally — holy shemoley — Alex Raymond hits his stride in the second Flash Gordon/Jungle Jim in our gigunda Champagne Edition size.
