“Caniff’s complete run on the strip is strongly recommended for all libraries. [He introduced] one colorful and memorable character after another—including heiress Normandie Drake, the slippery and beautiful Burma, and perhaps the series’ finest creation, the haughty, dangerous, and complex Dragon Lady.” — Library Journal
The saga continues in Terry and the Pirates Volume 5, reproduced from Milton Caniff's personal set of color syndicate tabloid proofs!
In the heart of Indo-China Terry, Pat, Connie, and Big Stoop take the good (teenaged southern belle April Kane) with the bad (the twin villainy of Baron DePlexus and Sanjak). Later, back in Hong Kong, competition from young Deeth Crispin III forces Terry to take dancing lessons—from the Dragon Lady! When the dust settles the three kids are scooped up and held captive in an expansive net that also leaves Pat and the Dragon Lady in the clutches of Warlord Klang! Escape causes the heroes to scatter. Pat and April are snatched up by Cap’n Blaze and his daughter, Cheery—who really fails to live up to her name!—with the menace of Singh-Singh lurking in the wings…
This tabloid-sized Volume 5 containing the 1939 dailies and Sundays is an unparalleled upgrade that no Terry fan can afford to pass up.
