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

From the publisher:

Axel's back and this time he's not taking any chances! Meanwhile, the lives of gangster Nick Gatt and crusading District Attorney John Tecum become inextricably linked. Plus, Annie crosses paths with the selfish movie star Pete LaPlata, his selfless elderly parents, his discarded wife Peggy, and his neglected son Billy. It's high emotional drama leading into the return of the very much alive "Daddy" Warbucks, now converting his factories for the coming war...all in Volume 9 of The Complete Little Orphan Annie.

Collects dailies and color Sundays from February 29, 1940 through November 23, 1941.

Features:

Over 600 sequential strips
Three daily strips or one Sunday per page
Sunday pages reproduced in full 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
