Description
Noel Sickles drew comics for three brief years, yet his groundbreaking work on the 1930s aviation adventure series "Scorchy Smith "is a milestone in the history of newspaper comic strips. Over the past 70 years, however, readers have seen only occasional excerpts of this seminal work. Now, IDW's Library of American Comics presents "Scorchy Smith and The Art of Noel Sickles," a comprehensive, oversized volume that collects, for the first time, every "Sickles Scorchy" strip, from December 1933 through November 1936. -The Library of American Comics is the world's #1 publisher of classic newspaper comic strips, with 14 Eisner Award nominations and three wins for best book. LOAC has become "the gold standard for archival comic strip reprints...The research and articles provide insight and context, and most importantly the glorious reproduction of the material has preserved these strips for those who knew them and offers a new gateway to adventure for those discovering them for the first time." - Scoop
