(W) Milton Caniff
1940 The Time of Cholera
"Caniff visualized his setup with a cinematic flair that remains thrilling because it is played straight." - The New Yorker
"Arguably the greatest of all adventure strips." - The Washington Post
The saga continues in Terry and the Pirates Volume 6, reproduced from Milton Caniff's personal set of color syndicate tabloid proofs!
Invader soldiers scatter the occupants of Singh-Singh's outpost, forcing Pat, Blaze, and April to flee. They take refuge at Raven Sherman's orphanage just in time for an outbreak of cholera (this is refuge?). Returning to the city, Raven meets the mysterious Hu Shee, while Pat is reunited with Terry, Big Stoop, and Connie and crosses paths with old friend Dude Hennick. All the newcomers to the cast-together with the Dragon Lady, no less!-fall prey to the schemes of Chopstick Joe. A strike by invader forces separate Terry and Hu Shee from the others, setting up an encounter with the elusive Chinese guerrilla leader known only as the Blue Tiger!
This tabloid-sized Volume 6 containing the 1940 dailies and Sundays is an unparalleled upgrade that no Terry fan can afford to pass up.
