Steve Canyon Vol. 9: 1963-1964
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. 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.
"This 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
