    by Milton Caniff
    Edited & Designed by Dean Mullaney, Essay by Bruce Canwell.

    The horizons are unlimited after World War II when Steve Canyon assembles a flight crew of veterans for his new air-transport business. Action flies high as Canyon and his men befriend Happy Easter, cross swords with the hirsute Herr Splitz, and match wits with Chief Izm. The Caniff women are also on display, as Canyon meets the steely yet sexy "Copper" Calhoun; the beautiful schemer, Delta; that modern-day Mata Hari, Madame Lynx; Dr. Deen Wilderness, who is as capable as she is lovely; plus Captain Shark, Convoy, and the footloose Fancy. The Library of American Comics launches this highly-awaited reprinting by collecting every daily and full-color Sunday from 1947 to 1948 in a single hardcover volume. There's excitement, humor, lovely women, and wonderful art in the exciting Caniff style!

    In the second volume of the complete Steve Canyon, the temperature of the Cold War heats up and Milton Caniff expands his already large cast even further. Steve re-engages with Copper Calhoon, encounters Chinese warlords such as Serge Blu, spies like Madame Lynx, and joins a secret air force from Western democracies taking on thinly-disguised communists. In the midst of all this intrigue, Happy meets his Hooligans, Reed Kimberly falls head over heels for Princess Snowflower, and Steve learns that the end of the 1940s may be the best years of their lives.

    In the third volume—reprinting every strip from 1951 and 1952—new and old characters are paired off. Breck Nazaire and Dr. Deen Wilderness return. Steve meets the lovely Duchess of Denver and the sadistic Fungo; gets assigned to Eel Island, where he encounters crusty Colonel Index and his not-so-blushing bride; is sent to protect a government secret at Maumee University, only to reconnect with Summer Olson and meet her mysterious friend, Kate Subjekt; and eventually gets caught in the deep woods with Miss Mizzou and Roy Himmerskorn before coming face to face yet again with not only Summer, but the Copperhead herself-Copper Calhoon!

    The fourth volume of The Complete Steve Canyon opens with Steve as the newly-minted Light Colonel bringing the jet age to the town of Indian Cape—and the natives are after an old friend’s scalp! Can Steve and new sidekick Pipper the Piper find a way to still an entire town’s wrath?

Of course, there are girls, girls, girls—Herself Muldoon, Summer Olson, plus Miss Mizzou, still wearing that trenchcoat! Then Steve looks up the Indexes, and the sparks really start to fly near the top of the world!
