Can Steve survive the Druid mark of doom amidst the British moors?
Cartoonist-in-Chief Milton Caniff tackles the escalating Cold War throughout 1961 and ’62, as Colonel Canyon finds himself trapped, alongside old friends Princess Snowflower and Doagie Hogan, in a net of intrigue between the USSR and Communist China! He later returns to Alaska, where a Red spy is uncovered under the most unlikely circumstances! Meanwhile as the world finds itself on the brink of nuclear war during the Cuban Missile Crisis, Canyon and the alluring Miss Mizzou thwarted an even more nefarious Communist plot, striking at the Panama Canal! Things are no quieter at home when Steve tries to tame civilian concerns surrounding a new missile complex outside the town of Hodag and teams with his cousin Poteet to teach a college-level course in human decency that revolves around the mysterious Latte Lavacca…all in these never-before-reprinted Caniff classics.
Steve Canyon is an ongoing picaresque novel of adventure, heroism, romance, intrigue, action, and patriotism that unfolded over 40 years.
“The collection, sharply reproduced from syndicate proofs, brilliantly shows off the hallmarks—cinematic storytelling, dramatic illustration, exotic locales, appealing characters, and snappy dialogue—that made Caniff one of comics’ most highly regarded and influential artists.” —Gordon Flagg, Booklist
