[no significant wear to either book or jacket, BUT a previous owner's careless manipulation of the bound-in ribbon bookmark has caused an unfortunate tear to page 100; this in no way affects the book's readability, but there it is]. (The Library of American Comics) Series (comic strip reproductions, B&W photographs) Rip Kirby, whose comic-strip adventures commenced in 1946, represented "a fresh approach to the crime genre, an about-face from the prevailing hard-boiled style of detective fiction. Rip Kirby was smart and sophisticated, but still a man's man. He often applied scientific methods to his crime-solving techniques, but was still involved in plenty of action -- Kirby was an All-American athlete and decorated war hero." This volume collects all the Kirby strips from March 1946 through December 1948, preceded by a couple of brief essays about Alex Raymond's life and work. 978-1-60010-484-8. Bookseller Inventory #
