Little Orphan Annie Vol. 12: 1945-1947 — It’s Only a Paper Moon
Written and illustrated by Harold Gray
It’s hard to keep a good man down and Oliver Warbucks is no exception. With reports of his death greatly exaggerated, “Daddy” is back and this time, with World War II over, he has to fight off a cadre of international businessmen who want him to hand over the secret of the atomic bomb! Meanwhile, Annie discovers that lying dogs don’t always stay put when she has to stand trial for murder! And in a classic Harold Gray tale, the little redhead finds respite from danger on a seemingly bucolic farm run by a young woman and her grandfather—but all is not what it seems. Volume Twelve of The Complete Little Orphan Annie reprints all daily and Sunday strips from April 15, 1945 to January 11, 1947.
