Chester Gould's fertile imagination continues at a breakneck pace, as he introduces The Brow, Flattop, Shaky, Breathless Mahoney, Measles, Gravel Gertie, B.O. Plenty, and the Summer Sisters! Edited and designed by Eisner Award-winner Dean Mullaney, and containing all daily and Sunday comic strips from March 23, 1944 through September 19, 1945, this volume features an introduction by Max Allan Collins, and includes a special feature by Jeff Kersten of the Dick Tracy Museum about the famous radio program, "Dick Tracy in B-Flat," starring Bing Crosby, Dinah Shore, Frank Sinatra, Jimmy Durante, and Bob Hope! -The Library of American Comics is the world's #1 publisher of classic newspaper comic strips, with 14 Eisner Award nominations and three wins for best book. LOAC has become "the gold standard for archival comic strip reprints... The research and articles provide insight and context, and most importantly the glorious reproduction of the material has preserved these strips for those who knew them and offers a new gateway to adventure for those discovering them for the first time." - Scoop
