    X-9: Secret Agent Corrigan Volume 6: 1980-1982

    by George Evans

    Edited by Dean Mullaney, Introduction by Mark Squirek, and an appreciation by George Pratt

    The best-selling series continues! Famed EC artist George Evans had periodically ghosted for Al Williamson on Secret Agent Corrigan and in 1980 Williamson and writer Archie Goodwin passed the strip to Evans permanently. Evans wrote and drew the strip for sixteen years until he and Phil Corrigan retired together in 1996. Evans had a long and illustrious career, from Fiction House and Fawcett to EC, where he worked along his friends Frank Frazetta and Al Williamson. This volume reprints the first Secret Agent Corrigan strips by Evans—more than 750 rarely-seen dailies from February 1980 to August 1982! It’s a must-have for all fans of adventure strips!
