Now for the first time ever in one volume, all twenty-eight stories and two serialized novels starring the Continental Op--one of the greatest characters in storied history of detective fiction. Dashiell Hammett is the father of modern hard-boiled detective stories. His legendary works have been lauded for almost one hundred years by fans, and his novel The Maltese Falcon was adapted into a classic film starring Humphrey Bogart. One of Dashiell Hammett's most memorable characters, the Continental Op made his debut in Black Mask magazine on October 1, 1923, narrating the first of twenty-eight stories and two novels that would change forever the face of detective fiction. The Op is a tough, wry, unglamorous gumshoe who has inspired a following that is both global and enduring. He has been published in periodicals, paperback digests, and short story collections, but until now, he has never, in all his ninety-two years, had the whole of his exploits contained in one book. The book features all twenty-eight of the original standalone Continental Op stories, the original serialized versions of Red Harvest and The Dain Curse, and previously unpublished material. This anthology of Continental Op stories is the only complete, one-volume work of its kind.

To millions of daily readers spanning five decades, Al Capp was the man whose biting satire made them laugh as he injected "Lower Slobbovia," "the double whammy," and "Sadie Hawkins Day" into our popular lexicon. To Nobel-laureate John Steinbeck, he was "very possibly the best writer in the world today." This series is the first-ever comprehensive reprinting of the comic strip--including both dailies and meticulously-restored full-color Sundays. At long last Li'l Abner and Daisy Mae get married in a story so big it earned the cover of Life magazine! But the course of true love never runs smoothly, especially when the newlyweds adopt Li'l Orphan Hammy. Plus, Fearless Fosdick must save the world from The Atom Bum (goodbye, world!); Daisy Mae and Moonbeam McSwine are taken captive by Sahara Sam, the Friendly Slave Dealer; and Abner falls victim to Nightmare Alice's voodoo powers. All in the complete daily and color Sunday comic strips from 1951 and '52!

Jack Kirby's comic strip masterpiece is presented in an archival version featuring the complete dailies from Sky Masters of the Space Force. Veteran scripters Dick and Dave Wood provided these late-1950s space/action adventure stories starring Sky Masters of the Space Force and his gang of intrepid followers which closely resemble Kirby's work on Challengers of the Unknown (which was being published at the same time). Kirby's artwork is embellished by Wallace Wood and later by Marvel inker extraordinaire Dick Ayers. Sky Masters was created at the beginning of the space race -- when who would get into space and to the moon first --was a national obsession. The strip takes place in the not to distant future where the United States sends men into space but hasn't ventured much further yet. The series in clearly anchored in the late 1950s/early1960s so it serves as a highly stylized period piece that still holds up very nicely. The material used in this archival edition ranges from original art, to press proofs, to tear sheets, and boasts the best reproduction of the strip ever.

A noted comics artist himself, Santiago García follows the history of the graphic novel from early nineteenth-century European sequential art, through the development of newspaper strips in the United States, to the development of the twentieth-century comic book and its subsequent crisis. He considers the aesthetic and entrepreneurial innovations that established the conditions for the rise of the graphic novel all over the world. García not only treats the formal components of the art, but also examines the cultural position of comics in various formats as a popular medium. Typically associated with children, often viewed as unedifying and even at times as a threat to moral character, comics art has come a long way. With such examples from around the world as Spain, France, Germany, and Japan, García illustrates how the graphic novel, with its increasingly global and aesthetically sophisticated profile, represents a new model for graphic narrative production that empowers authors and challenges longstanding social prejudices against comics and what they can achieve.
