This opens with Steve as the newly-minted Light Colonel bringing the jet age to the town of Indian Cape--and the natives are after an old friend's scalp! Can Steve and new sidekick Pipper the Piper find a way to still an entire town's wrath? Canyon encounters old friends throughout 1953 and into 1954: Princess Snowflower, the irascible Dogie Hogan, and the leader of a band of Hooligans on horseback.
Of course, there are girls, girls, girls--Herself Muldoon, Summer Olson, plus Miss Mizzou, still wearing that trenchcoat! Then Steve looks up the Indexes, and the sparks really start to fly near the top of the world! Edited and designed by Dean Mullaney.
Includes a fine 13-page essay by Bruce Canwell, "Stage Dressing." Bruce compares Caniff's stories and characters between Terry and Canyon. He also looks at the models for his characters, including several pages of "character study" that defines each character and shows photos of the models they were based on. Also here are some rare Caniff promo art and several period photos, all of which add another dimension to this fine collection.
Steve Canyon is presented in a matching hardcover set to the Library of American Comics's Eisner Award-winning Terry and the Pirates. This is a massive 336 pages, with each Sunday in full color and superb, crystal-clear reproduction.
