Little Orphan Annie Vol. 11: 1943-1945
Death Be Thy
by Harold Gray
Edited & Designed by Dean Mullaney, Essay by Jeet Heer
In the depths of the Second World War, Harold
Gray paints a dark vision of stateside America when Annie's most
loyal friends turn out to be a boarding house full of thieves,
forgers, and mindreaders. The red-garbed orphan sees that petty
politicians and their underworld companions can deprive a small
town of freedom just as easily as can foreign spies, and that a big
city can be home to a larger and even more dangerous threat to
national security. To Annie's initial joy, "Daddy" Warbucks comes
home from war, but this time it's not to be with his beloved
adopted daughterrob, but...to die. With "Daddy" gone, Annie ends up
terrorized by the wretchedly evil Mrs. Bleating-Hart, who robs
Annie of her liberty in a very real and personal way. Reprinting
all daily and Sunday strips from August 8, 1943 to April 14, 1945,
in the darkest hours before the dawn.
