Book Description IDW Publishing, 2007. Hard Cover. Condition: New. IDW Publishing 2007. Part Colour illustrations. To celebrate the centennial of Milton Caniff's birth, IDW Publishing are publishing a fully authorized six-book series collecting the entirety of Caniff's groundbreaking newspaper adventure strip Terry and the Pirates. Volume One contains more than 800 consecutive strips, from the series' beginning in October 1934 through the end of 1936. An informed essay provides biographical material, and places Caniff's seminal work in the context of both comic strip history and of the real-world events reflected in the stories. The Sunday pages are reproduced in their original colour, alongside the daily black-and-white strips. No cartoonist has so heavily influenced his medium as has Milton Caniff, and no comic strip has had more imitators than Terry and the Pirates. He is considered the great American novelist of the comics medium. Terry and the Pirates provided the vehicle for Caniff's maturation both as an artist and as a storyteller. He set the strip in exotic China, where historic events then occurring in the region during the 1930s provided the raw material from which he blended fantasy and reality to create an extraordinary graphic narrative. Howard Chaykin, who has written the introduction to Volume One, says, "It's historically the first, and for my money, greatest example of what we do. The evolution of what Caniff did with Terry in his first year is unbelievable. It's pure core storytelling". The story introduces young Terry Lee, his adult pal Pat Ryan, their sidekick Connie, as well as an array of unforgettable brigands such as Captains Judas and Blaze, and the two toughest women to ever sail on the China Seas: the alluring Burma and the inimitable Dragon Lady. 370 pages.
