From the publisher:

The longest-running modern adventure strip continues with 11 new stories starring the debonair private detective, reproduced from the original King Features Syndicate proofs.

In these eleven stories, Rip Kirby takes part in an old-style shoot-out in a nearly-deserted Western ghost town, battles the deadly Owl and the Pussycat over a hidden stash of heroin, and rubs a magic lamp the wrong way in a Turkish bazaar. After learning he is the doppelganger of the crown prince of a postage stamp-sized country, the bespectacled detective follows the trail of a counterfeit two million before being framed by a paroled con man who wants to get even with Rip for making him play second fiddle in the prison orchestra. Plus--the long awaited return of the Rip's original girlfriend, Honey Dorian, as well as his arch-nemesis, the deadly Mangler!

The more than 800 sequential comics from January 22, 1973 to October 11, 1975 also feature Rip's new girlfriend Holly Glowstep, and standbys such as Desmond, Wiggins, and Ma Casino.

Edited and Designed by Dean Mullaney / Introduction by Bruce Canwell

He was named a Disney Legend in 2008 and was the longest serving employee of The Walt Disney Company, with a career that spanned almost 70 years. His extensive library included numerous subjects and especially large collections of books on Disney, animation, and classic comic strips.
