Little Orphan Annie Vol. 9: 1940-1941 — Saints and Cynics
Written and illustrated by Harold Gray
Axel’s back and this time he’s not taking any chances! Meanwhile, the lives of gangster Nick Gatt and crusading District Attorney John Tecum become inextricably linked. Plus, Annie crosses paths with the selfish movie star Pete LaPlata, his selfless elderly parents, his discarded wife Peggy, and his neglected son Billy. It’s high emotional drama leading into the return of the very much alive “Daddy” Warbucks, now converting his factories for the coming war…all in Volume Nine of The Complete Little Orphan Annie. Including dailies and Sundays from February 29, 1940 through November 23, 1941.
