The Adventurous Decade: Comic Strips in the Thirties
Long out of print, The Adventurous Decade is now available again, covering the background and art of such strips as Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon, Tarzan, Scorchy Smith, Dick Tracy, Terry and the Pirates, Prince Valiant, The Phantom, Brick Bradford, The Spirit, and Don Winslow together with many seldom-discussed strips such as Bronc Peeler, Tex Throne, Roy Powers, Dan Dunn and Tailspin Tommy. While the text of the book, based on interviews with such comic strip luminaries as Noel Sickles, Milton Caniff, Roy Crane, Alfred Andriola, Dick Moore, Mel Graff, Leslie Turner and other improtant strip artists, remains unchanged (why change a classic?), the book has been totally redesigned in a 9 inch by 12 inch landscape format to showcase the fabulous Artwork from these strips. The reprint is printed on deluxe heavy Paper stock with all new illustrations, many taken from rarely seen original Artwork.
