Frank Robbins’ masterpiece, one of the all-time greatest action/adventure newspaper comic strips, "distinguished by action, adventure, beautiful women, as well as numerous femme fatales." Seven more complete stories. More trend-setting artwork, reproduced entirely from original King Features press proofs. "He (Robbins) was constantly trying to push the limitations of the (comic strip) format and frequently achieved his objective, creating B-movie, film-like quality in his storytelling and artwork."

"Most importantly, and this is one of the main reasons for the long term success of the feature: his characters developed real personalities which made reading the strip a daily requirement of its thousands of fans." Robbins began his comics career taking over the fabled Scorchy Smith.

"Robbins spent three decades creating continuing adventures for Johnny Hazard and and this series continues to remind readers of how timeless they are, just as the best classic B-movies from the 1940s and 1950s still pack a punch despite their lack of special effects, big budgets, or big name stars." -all quotes are from the Introduction by Daniel Herman.

Reproduced from the lovely, crystal-clear syndicate press proofs from Michigan State University's Special Collections.
