Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


While investigating crimes on both sides of the Atlantic, the urbane detective encounters beautiful and conniving women, menacing men, jewel thieves, pickpockets, ex-Nazis, rich debutantes, spoiled heirs, kleptomaniac mothers, small town gossips, a fake Yogi named "The Great You," his recurring nemesis - the Mangler - and more than a murder or two. Meanwhile, the tension builds in his love triangle with Honey Dorian and Pagan Lee.a The second volume of Alex Raymond's modernist classic Rip Kirby contains nearly three years of strips, from December 6, 1948 through September 22, 1951, all drawn in Raymond's incredibly lush style.

Author Biography

Alex Raymonda(1909-1956) is regarded, with Milton Caniff and Hal Foster, as one of the three giants of newspaper adventure strip artists. Raymond apprenticed with Chic Young onaBlondie, and Lymon Young onaTim Tyler's Luck. The year 1934 was a major turning point in his career- he illustratedaX-9, a new detective comic strip written by Dashiell Hammett, and then createdaFlash Gordon and Jungle Jim.aRip Kirby, created in 1946, signaled a grand departure, both thematically and artistically, from the science fiction classic. He promulgated a new art style-one of cinematic photo-realism-that influenced such artists as Stan Drake, Leonard Starr, Al Williamson, and Neal Adams.
