Written and illustrated by Milton Caniff

The Library of American Comics and Clover Press are proud to publish Terry and the Pirates: The Master Collection. Reproduced from Milton Caniff’s personal set of color syndicate tabloid proofs that were unavailable for previous books, this series is the ultimate edition of Caniff’s masterpiece. We present the Sundays in an unmatched color fidelity and larger than they have ever before been reprinted—an unparalleled upgrade that no Terry fan can afford to pass up.

The complete strip will be collected in twelve deluxe 11″ x 14″ hardcover volumes, with a complementary thirteenth volume by Dean Mullaney and Bruce Canwell that tells the behind-the-scenes story of the strip.

Terry and the Pirates debuted in October 1934. For the next twelve years, Caniff would weave a spell of exotic adventure, sex appeal, and humor. The cartoonist set the strip in exotic China, where historic events occurring in the region during the 1930s provided the raw material from which he blended fantasy and reality to create an extraordinary graphic narrative. The series introduces young Terry Lee, his adult pal Pat Ryan, their sidekick Connie, as well as an array of unforgettable brigands such as Captains Judas and Blaze, and the two toughest women to ever sail on the China Seas: the alluring Burma and the inimitable Dragon Lady.

No cartoonist has so heavily influenced his medium as has Milton Caniff, and no comic strip has had more imitators than Terry and the Pirates. Terry and the Pirates was read by 31 million newspaper subscribers between 1934 and 1946. Vol. 1 collects all dailies and Sundays from the strip’s beginning on October 22, 1934 through the end of 1935 in a deluxe 192 pp, 11″ x 14″, hardcover.

Kidnapped by thugs and held at gunpoint, Annie is still in deadly peril from “Daddy” Warbucks’s enemies. But that’s not the only threat facing the peripatetic moptop.

When the financier’s enemies catch up with him again, the only hope Annie has may rest with an attic full of ghosts!

Dick Tracy Vol. 29: 1976-1977

$44.99

Written and illustrated by Chester Gould

This is it!

After 46-years-two months-and-twenty-one-days writing and drawing Dick Tracy Chester Gould retired at the age of 77. In these historic final strips, Gould pits his dynamic detective against the latest in a long line of grotesque villains—Pucker Puss, the hitman who literally spits death at his opponents. Tracy, meanwhile, takes his law and order campaign to television, while his past catches up to him when a criminal he helped convict twenty years ago puts the detective on his “to kill” list. To round out this volume, the squad room is kept busy with two members of B.O. Plenty’s extended family who are anything but law-abiding—Perfume Plenty and her larcenous cousin Dade. All this and more in the ultimate volume of Chester Gould’s Dick Tracy, collecting strips from March 15, 1976 to December 25, 1977.

Edited & Designed by Dean Mullaney / Introduction by Max Allan Collins / Afterword by Jeff Kersten / 11″ x 8.5″ / hardcover / B&W / 304 pp / ISBN 978-1-68405-752-8

Dick Tracy Vol. 28: 1974-1976

$44.99

Written and illustrated by Chester Gould

In these latter-day Dick Tracy adventures Chester Gould again proves that he was never one to rest on his laurels. The square-jawed detective fights it out with one thug after another, including Lispy and the visually grotesque villain appropriately named The Brain. These stories are replete with murder, suicide, gangland execution, dope smuggling, a deadly natural disaster, and not one but two main characters on the verge of death. The singular motive behind it all? Money, plenty of money. All this and the return of retired Chief Brandon in the penultimate volume of Chester Gould’s Dick Tracy, collecting strips from July 7, 1974 to March 14, 1976.

Edited & designed by Dean Mullaney / Introduction by Max Allan Collins / Afterword by Jeff Kersten / 11″ x 8.5″ / hardcover / B&W / 288 pp / ISBN 978-1-68405-690-3
