To millions of daily readers spanning five decades, Al Capp was the man whose biting satire made them laugh as he injected "Lower Slobbovia," "the double whammy," and "Sadie Hawkins Day" into our popular lexicon. To Nobel-laureate John Steinbeck, he was "very possibly the best writer in the world today." This series is the first-ever comprehensive reprinting of the comic strip--including both dailies and meticulously-restored full-color Sundays. At long last Li'l Abner and Daisy Mae get married in a story so big it earned the cover of Life magazine! But the course of true love never runs smoothly, especially when the newlyweds adopt Li'l Orphan Hammy. Plus, Fearless Fosdick must save the world from The Atom Bum (goodbye, world!); Daisy Mae and Moonbeam McSwine are taken captive by Sahara Sam, the Friendly Slave Dealer; and Abner falls victim to Nightmare Alice's voodoo powers. All in the complete daily and color Sunday comic strips from 1951 and '52!

Jack Kirby's comic strip masterpiece is presented in an archival version featuring the complete dailies from Sky Masters of the Space Force. Veteran scripters Dick and Dave Wood provided these late-1950s space/action adventure stories starring Sky Masters of the Space Force and his gang of intrepid followers which closely resemble Kirby's work on Challengers of the Unknown (which was being published at the same time). Kirby's artwork is embellished by Wallace Wood and later by Marvel inker extraordinaire Dick Ayers. Sky Masters was created at the beginning of the space race -- when who would get into space and to the moon first --was a national obsession. The strip takes place in the not to distant future where the United States sends men into space but hasn't ventured much further yet. The series in clearly anchored in the late 1950s/early1960s so it serves as a highly stylized period piece that still holds up very nicely. The material used in this archival edition ranges from original art, to press proofs, to tear sheets, and boasts the best reproduction of the strip ever.

Now for the first time ever in one volume, all twenty-eight stories and two serialized novels starring the Continental Op--one of the greatest characters in storied history of detective fiction. Dashiell Hammett is the father of modern hard-boiled detective stories. His legendary works have been lauded for almost one hundred years by fans, and his novel The Maltese Falcon was adapted into a classic film starring Humphrey Bogart. One of Dashiell Hammett's most memorable characters, the Continental Op made his debut in Black Mask magazine on October 1, 1923, narrating the first of twenty-eight stories and two novels that would change forever the face of detective fiction. The Op is a tough, wry, unglamorous gumshoe who has inspired a following that is both global and enduring. He has been published in periodicals, paperback digests, and short story collections, but until now, he has never, in all his ninety-two years, had the whole of his exploits contained in one book. The book features all twenty-eight of the original standalone Continental Op stories, the original serialized versions of Red Harvest and The Dain Curse, and previously unpublished material. This anthology of Continental Op stories is the only complete, one-volume work of its kind.

Dick Tracy embarks on a seven-month-long complicated manhunt when he relentlessly tracks the Brush and a million-dollar sack of cash--but with his foe on the lam without his trademark face wig, Tracy doesn't even know what the murderer looks like! The dauntless detective also encounters killer chimps and slashing panthers, protects Little Boy Beard from a deadly revenge plot, investigates a shady surgeon named Keip Choppin, and finds himself immersed in a forty-year-old cold case suddenly turned very hot. The strip enters its fourth decade as Chester Gould also presents a poignant story that rivals the "Model" narrative, when Tracy has to protect Junior from disturbing news about an important figure from the boy's past. Included are all strips from February 20, 1961 through August 26, 1962.

Dinosaurs Are Forever A pictorial history of paleoart It was 1830 when an English scientist named Henry De la Beche painted the first piece of paleoart, a dazzling, deliciously macabre vision of prehistoric reptiles battling underwater. Since then, artists the world over have conjured up visions of dinosaurs, woolly mammoths, cavemen, and other creatures, shaping our understanding of the primeval past through their exhilarating images. In this unprecedented new book, writer Zo� Lescaze and artist Walton Ford present the astonishing history of paleoart from 1830 to 1990. These are not cave paintings produced thousands of years ago, but modern visions of the prehistory: stunning paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, mosaics, and murals that mingle scientific fact with unbridled fantasy. The collection provides an in-depth look at this neglected niche of art history, and shows the artists charged with imagining these extinct creatures projected their own aesthetic whims onto prehistory, rendering the primordial past with dashes of Romanticism, Impressionism, Japonisme, Fauvism, and Art Nouveau, among other influences. With incisive essays from Lescaze, a preface by Ford, five fold-outs, and dozens of details, the book showcases a stunning collection of artworks plucked from major natural history museums, obscure archives, and private collections, and includes new photography of key works, including Charles R. Knight's seminal dinosaur paintings in Chicago and little-known masterpieces such as A. M. Belashova's monumental mosaic in Moscow. From the fearsome to the fantastical, Paleoart: Visions of a Prehistoric Past 1830-1990 is a celebration of prehistoric animals in art, and a novel chance to understand our favorite extinct beasts through a new art historical lens.
