John Prentice won the National Cartoonists Society award for "Best Story Strip Cartoonist" in 1967, proving that the adventure strip could still capture the public's imagination. Similarly, Rip Kirby, that debonair gentleman detective, proved that style and class still counted among the sexy jet-set. In these nine complete stories, Rip must prevent a super-secret missile defense system selling to the highest bidder, is hired protect a gorgeous movie star from kidnapping, and in a bizarre twist, faithful Desmond is hypnotized into reverting to his former occupation as safecracker, with Rip as his victim.

The strips are reproduced from the original King Features Syndicate proofs, insuring that every daily will look even better than when it was first published in newspapers over fifty years ago. Containing more than 800 sequential comics from July 10, 1967 to April 25, 1970! Outstanding fine-line, reaistic style by an unsung master who at times even seems to outdraw Raymond himself. Prentice started in comic books in the early 1950s and was tapped when Raymond was killed to take over this popular adventures strip. He proceeded to have a long career in the newspaper strip world.

Introduction by Bruce Canwell.
