Rip Kirby Vol. 5: 1956-1959
Written by Fred Dickenson and Illustrated by John Prentice
The fifth volume of Rip Kirby features the incredible art of John Prentice, who picked up the pen and ink duties after Alex Raymond’s death and continued drawing the strip for decades. Prentice received three Reuben Awards for the series, in 1966, 1967, and 1986. Fred Dickenson, who had been writing the strip with 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 October 22, 1956 to June 6, 1959.
