* In the final volume of The Complete Terry and The Pirates, reprinting every strip from the years 1945 and 1946, World War II comes to an end, and then Milton Caniff says goodbye to his greatest creation. Readers will be sometimes delighted, sometimes shocked by their last visits with the Dragon Lady, Pat Ryan, Burma, Hu Shee, Snake Tumblin, Papa Pyzon, Tony Sandhurst, Baron de Plexus, Nastalthia Smythe-Heatherstone, Jane Allen, Deeth Crispin, and April Kane.-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 *
