Steve Canyon Series : Titles in Order

Book 12
Stamp your passport for adventure, intrigue, and danger on your expedition to exotic locales with The Greatest Generation’s cartoonist-in-chief!

The landmark Steve Canyon, Volume 12 brings Milton Caniff’s picaresque novel through the end of the tumultuous 1960s and into a brand-new decade. Everyone’s favorite bird colonel travels from Alaska to Latin America and romances women from dominating millionaire Copper Calhoon to… Poteet’s old friend, Bitsy Beekman? Things are not always as they seem, but the course of love finally runs true on April 24, 1970.
 
The Rembrandt of the Comic Strips also does a serious turn, once again tackling the issue of addiction, more than eighteen months before President Nixon declared a “War on Drugs.” Meanwhile, Poteet Canyon covers the Powder Puff Derby as Bitsy enters the race, vying to become the champion woman pilot of 1969! On land or thousands of feet in the air, the action never stops in Steve Canyon, Volume 12!
 
The Greatest Generation’s cartoonist-in-chief, Milton Caniff, continues to appeal to two disparate groups–comics aficionados as well as active military and veterans. The Air Force created an official record for Steve Canyon, the only time a fictional character was so honored.
Book 11

“Who am I?” “Where am I?” Steve is left with some thorny questions after posing as the leader of a Nazi resurgence organization and teaming with Minerva Kaol in an attempt to flush out this hate-mongering group. If that wasn’t headache enough, guess who’s back from his stay in a Mongolian prison? Doagie Hogan, that’s who! Stateside, Poteet finds a new friend in young aviatrix Bitsy Beekman. Together they tackle drug smuggling, explore the upcoming Olympic games, and deal with the scourge of society–hippies! Milton Caniff offers his unique perspective of the war-torn world of 1967 and ’68 in Steve Canyon, Volume 11!

Book 10
Stamp your passport for adventure, intrigue, and danger on your expedition to exotic locales with The Greatest Generation’s cartoonist-in-chief!

Shades of Terry and the Pirates! Steve roams the Far East in Volume 10, learning that politics makes strange bedfellows as he first teams up with Cheetah in Taiwan, then goes undercover in Hanoi to rescue “Herself” Muldoon! In between he encounters another femme fatale from his past, now harrying the Hong Kong waters under the nom de guerre “Madame Hook.” Sports are also prominent, as gangsters squeeze Poteet and Shaky Blopp in order to get points shaved on the basketball court. Steve races to stop a Communist plot to drop an atomic bomb on a football stadium (!), and baseball works its magic to save the day–and an old friend–in far-off Mahnay.

Milton Caniff is synonymous with adventure and spine-tingling excitement, and they’re on display throughout Steve Canyon, Volume 10.
Book 9
An ongoing comic serial of adventure, romance, intrigue, and patriotism that unfolded over 40 years, appealing to both comics afficianados and active military and veterans.

Six white horses laid a President to rest as a nation wept, but Milton Caniff knew that a man-and a nation-must carry on. In these stories from 1963-64, the globetrotting Steve Canyon foils diabolical enemy plots in half a dozen countries. Steve goes undercover in Turkey, tries not to get clawed by his old “friend” Cheetah during an encounter in western Mexico, and tackles a communist plot in Africa. After being embroiled in a royal family feud in the fictional kingdom of Mahnay, Canyon has his first brush with military action in a small Indochinese country-Vietnam! Things are no quieter on the home front, as Copper Calhoon and Summer Olsen have it out, while cousin Poteet helps uncover a foreign agent planted at the 1964 World’s Fair. It’s action, humor, and mystery in the distinctive Caniff style in these never-before-reprinted daily and full-color Sunday comics.
