Rip Kirby Vol. 6: 1959-1962
Written by Fred Dickenson and Illustrated by John Prentice
In this sixth volume, Rip Kirby goes from Mid-Century Cool to the Swinging Early Sixties as artist John Prentice has made the strip completely his own. He would soon receive the National Cartoonist Society award for “Best Story Strip Cartoonist” in 1966 and 1967. Fred Dickenson, who had been writing the strip with series originator Alex Raymond, keeps the continuity going for Prentice’s exquisite art. The strips are reproduced from the original King Features Syndicate proofs, insuring that every daily will look even better than when they were first published in newspapers over fifty years ago. Containing more than 800 comics, every one from June 8, 1959 to February 10, 1962.
