Written and illustrated by Milton Caniff
Stamp your passport for adventure, intrigue, and danger on your expedition to exotic locales with The Greatest Generation’s cartoonist-in-chief!
The landmark Steve Canyon, Volume 12 brings Milton Caniff’s picaresque novel through the end of the tumultuous 1960s and into a brand-new decade. Everyone’s favorite bird colonel travels from Alaska to Latin America and romances women from dominating millionaire Copper Calhoon to… Poteet’s old friend, Bitsy Beekman? Things are not always as they seem, but the course of love finally runs true on April 24, 1970.
The Rembrandt of the Comic Strips also does a serious turn, once again tackling the issue of addiction, more than eighteen months before President Nixon declared a “War on Drugs.” Meanwhile, Poteet Canyon covers the Powder Puff Derby as Bitsy enters the race, vying to become the champion woman pilot of 1969! On land or thousands of feet in the air, the action never stops in Steve Canyon, Volume 12!
The Greatest Generation’s cartoonist-in-chief, Milton Caniff, continues to appeal to two disparate groups–comics aficionados as well as active military and veterans. The Air Force created an official record for Steve Canyon, the only time a fictional character was so honored.
