Rip Kirby The First Modern Detective Complete Comic Strips Volume 1 1946-1948

Rip Kirby The First Modern Detective Complete Comic Strips Volume 1 1946-1948 by Alex Raymond at The Illustration Art Gallery

Ref: RKTFMD1 (Click for larger cover picture!)

The first in IDW's new series reprinting 30 months of daily continuity in their gorgeously presented Library of American Comics. Created by Alex Raymond when he was deactivated from the Marines after World War II, Rip Kirby was a fresh approach to the genre, a departure from the prevailing hard-boiled style of detective fiction. Rip Kirby was urbane and cerebral, and used scientific methods as often as he used his fists when solving crimes and mysteries.

Edited and designed by Eisner Award-winner Dean Mullaney, the strips are reproduced from pristine syndicate proofs that will allow readers to see, for the first time, the luxurious detail of Raymond's brushwork. Includes a biographical and historic essay by Brian Walker, and an introduction by Raymond biographer and authority Tom Roberts.
