Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Young Terry Lee, bequeathed a map to an abandoned Chinese mine by his late grandfather, sets out to locate it with his two-fisted adult friend, Pat Ryan, and their Chinese interpreter, Connie. Together, they find excitement and danger among the pirates, bandits, and expatriates of 1930s China. This inaugural volume of IDW's "Library of American Comics" reprints the first 26 months (1934-36) of this seminal adventure strip, with the Sunday installments in full color. Caniff, also known for his later newspaper strip Steve Canyon, begins somewhat crudely but hits his stride quickly, introducing one colorful and memorable character after another-many of them romantic foils for Pat, including heiress Normandie Drake, the slippery and beautiful Burma, and perhaps the series' finest creation, the haughty, dangerous, and complex Dragon Lady, a pirate queen who sometimes threatens our heroes and sometimes fights alongside them. The stories remain rousing; action sequences are interspersed with comic relief, often courtesy of Connie's goofball antics and fractured but witty "Engrish." NBM has published this material previously, but their editions are long out of print. This first of six planned volumes collecting Caniff's complete run on the strip is strongly recommended for all libraries.
