The third volume of Alex Raymond's modernist classic, Rip Kirby, contains nearly three years of strips, from September 24, 1951 through April 17, 1954, all rendered in Raymond's incredibly lush style. World's best photographer, the sexy Bijou Benson; a playboy sheik from Algiers; a revolution in the Middle East; the return of criminals Joe Seven, Fingers Moray, and the deadly Mangler; the deadly Lili Lavelle; all while Honey Dorian, of course, is not happy that Pagan Lee re-enters the picture.

About the Author
Alex Raymond (1909-1956) is regarded, with Milton Caniff and Hal Foster, as one of the three giants of newspaper adventure strip artists. Raymond apprenticed with Chic Young on Blondie, and Lymon Young on Tim Tyler's Luck. The year 1934 was a major turning point in his career: he illustrated X-9, a new detective comic strip written by Dashiell Hammett, and then created Flash Gordon and Jungle Jim. Rip Kirby, created in 1946, signaled a grand departure, both thematically and artistically, from the science fiction classic. He promulgated a new art style—one of cinematic photo-realism—that influenced such artists as Stan Drake, Leonard Starr, Al Williamson, and Neal Adams.
