Details

Things take a decidedly domestic turn in our sixth volume. Can Summer and Steve rekindle their love amidst the action? Can Poteet find happiness on the polo field? Since this is Steve Canyon, not all the action takes place at home, and old friends unexpectedly pop up in new places.

Miss Mizzou feels overdressed on Finger Island; Colonel Sam Index reappears at Higgs Air Base; Princess Snowflower comes to America as a pawn in Doagie Hogan's plan to attack Communist China; and Savannah Gay teams up with none other than Bob Hope in a special Christmas story. Everyone's favorite Light Colonel dodges death and femme fatales alike in volume six of The Complete Steve Canyon!

From Steve Canwell's extra-illustrated introduction: "Of Caniff's many civic contributions, Steve Canyon was arguably the greatest. When the picaresque comic strip hero was recalled to service following the outbreak of the Korean conflict he became a daily advertisement for the benefits of a career with Uncle Sam. Steve's exciting, glamorous, globe-girdling exploits also provided a bully pulpit from which the audience was informed about the value of the armed services and the benefits of a cooperative relationship between the general public and the men in uniform."

For this the Air Force awarded Caniff their Exceptional Serivce Award in 1957, which is fully detailed here as part of Canwell's informative 13-page introduction. Lots of rare photos of Caniff and touring movie starlets!
