From the publisher:

In his most exciting adventure ever, Alley Oop rockets to the Moon and battles the saucer people! Fatally wounded, Oop is saved by a shaman's cure! Back in his own prehistoric Cenozoic Age, Oop leads Moo in an epic war with Lem over beautiful cavegirl Oola! Singing dinosaurs, mad scientists, and modern-day Florida pirates are just some of the wild creatures in this vintage year of one of the greatest comic strips!

Also included: George E. Turner and Michael H. Price's introduction, based on extensive interviews with V.T. Hamlin, traces the genesis of Oop to the Panther Kitten, Hamlin's rare early sports panel, and is filled with never-before-reprinted art from his career as a Texas newspaper cartoonist.
