The best collection of Harold Gray's classic adventure comic strip. Great reading. My favorite comic strip of all time.

From the publisher:

In Volume Two, "The Darkest Hour is Just Before Dawn," America's spunkiest kid stands for fair play as she gives the scoundrels and rats their just desserts!

Little Orphan Annie--the original female comics hero--takes on chiseling business men and a gang of thieves, armed only with her sharp wit and a good left hook. Then she helps her surrogate parents by nursing "Daddy" Warbucks to health and helping save the Silos' family farm. And only that little chatter-box could become a cross between Robinson Crusoe and Dr. Doolittle when she and Sandy are shipwrecked on a deserted island.

Enjoy all the unique adventure and earnest charm of Volume Two in The Library of American Comics presentation of Little Orphan Annie, containing nearly 1,000 comic strips from October 1927 to November 1930.

Features:

Nearly 1,000 consecutive strips
Three daily strips or one Sunday per page
Some Sundays in color
Printed on a heavy matte paper stock
The comic strips have been scanned from original artwork and syndicate proofs of the Harold Gray Archives at Boston University
Extensive essays about LOA-related subjects by Jeet Heer and other comics experts in each volume
Edited and designed by Eisner-Award winner Dean Mullaney

"Check out The Complete Little Orphan Annie by Harold Gray. The blank-eyed orphan was far grittier and moving than the saccharine Annie you know from the damn musical. [It] started in 1924 in a world chillingly like ours: crawling with cake-eaters, greedy bankers and international con men who exploit the hardscrabble working stiffs Annie hangs with when her "Daddy" isn't around to protect her. The cartoonist, a tightlipped Midwestern Dickens, pushes the virtues of honesty, pluck, and hard work in adventures that can melt the heart of even hard-boiled cynics like I pretend to be." -- Art Spiegelman
