In this first major collection of these episodes, Steven meets the lovely Duchess of Denver and sadistic Fungo; is assigned to Eel Island and meets the crusty Colonel Index and his not-so-blushing bride; is sent to protect a government secret at Maumee University, only to reconnect with Summer Olson and her mysterious friend, Kate Subjekt; and eventually gets caught in the deep woods with Miss Mizzou before coming face to face yet again with Summer and the Copperhead herself--Copper Calhoon.
Presented in a matching format to the Eisner award-winning Complete Terry and the Pirates. Reproduced directly from Milton Caniff's personal set of syndicate proofs. Since the dailies and Sundays were sequential--carrying on the same storyline--they are here entirely in the correct order, each week's dailies and then the FULL COLOR Sunday. The color Sundays are knockouts, with superlative, classic Caniff artwork and lush, superbly restored color!
This definitive edition of Caniff's famous flyboy features every Sunday in color and the daily strips from 1951 to 52 in their original uncropped versions. Over 700 comics! Edited by Dean Mullaney. A fascinating, 15-page introduction by Bruce Canwell is entitled "Stage Dressing: Promotions of every Type." It offers up wonderful photos of Caniff and his female models from a Sept 1951 photo shoot for Modern Man, plus 1950 and 1952 Harvey Comics Calendars and more.
