Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This second of four volumes reprints in full color the rare Sunday pages from the 1930s. Roy Crane's Soldier of Fortune, Captain Easy, fights for gold in the frozen north, is mistaken for a bandit, protects a formula for artificial diamonds, is stranded on a desert island, visits the tiny Balkan country of Kleptomania, and faces a firing squad. Captain Easy hobnobs with millionaires and bums and beautiful girls (of course), and winds up in the middle of a full scale war. In short, it's another rousing series of adventure and humor encapsulating the gallantry, derring-do, and rough-and-tumble innocence of a bygone era and a bygone genre, written and drawn with panache, and practically painted in a vibrant spectrum of colors that you have to see to believe. Long before the first superhero, Roy Crane's courageous, indomitable, and cliff-ganging rough guy served as the template for characters that later defined comic books, and set the aesthetic standards for the newspaper strip. Crane's mastery is why creator Charles Schulz said of him (circa 1989): "A treasure. There is still no one around who draws any better."

Synopsis:

High adventure on the high seas!
