Editorial Reviews

Review

“Good Lord, but Roy Crane could draw.” (Steve Duin - The Oregonian)

“[Roy Crane] is a treasure. There is still no one around who draws any better.” (Charles Schulz)

“Roy Crane did adventure with a beautiful combination of cartooning and storytelling. Every panel was an entertaining panel, with something to look at. When you combine his storytelling ability, with or without balloons, with his action and those great panels, you can’t fail.” (John Severin)

The reproduction here is only fair and that's a shame since half the joy of reading Buz Sawyer lies in Roy Crane's masterful use of Craftint Paper. But the other half lies in Crane's brilliant storytelling. The panels are never overwritten and yet the characters are richly developed and the story is never static. The pacing is near perfect. Most strip art suffers when read in a collection since they were meant to be read in daily installments. It's a testament to Crane's strength as a writer that Buz Sawyer is an exception to the rule.

This is the second volume of Fantagraphics reprint of Roy Crane's classic Buz Sawyer daily comic strip. I believe 6 are planned.

Roy Crane is one of the great comic strip artists/writers who are largely overlooked. He is also part of a small group who after creating a great strip (Wash Tubbs & Captain Easy in Crane's case), left to create a new strip (one he owned and was better paid). Others who did this include Milt Caniff (Terry and the Pirates and Steve Canyon) and Hal Foster (Tarzan and Prince Valiant).

As Crane made the switch during WWII (unlike Caniff who did it post-war), Buz Sawyer is originally set in the Pacific. This collection starts the post-War period of Buz Sawyer, running from 1945 to July of 1947

Our main character is Buz Sawyer, a former Navy pilot and Lieutenant. He is from Texas, had attended University of Texas and was a football star there. The older Rosco Sweeney is his former rear gunner and radioman. He serves as a loyal sidekick and sometime comic relief, but also valuable assistance. Fellow former pilot Chili Harrison is a secondary character as well.

Like other adventure strips, you need to have the romance element, and in Buz we saw the development of a love triangle around Buz in the first volume. There is the beautiful, but cold Tot Winter, the rich girl from his home town. There is the overlooked (by Buz) Christy Jameson from his hometown (seen as more of a friend then a girlfriend at first). And there is the mysterious Maharani, whom Buz called "Sultry". I was expected something like Caniff did in Steve Canyon with Copper Calhoun and Summer Olsen, but instead see a quick resolution of this triangle in this volume, and in a way I didn't expect.

Buz Sawyer has returned to civilian life in this volume as a troubleshooter, but there are still many scenes of aircraft, boats, ocean and mountains where the artist's skills are evident. Roy Crane's people are typically composed of outlines with with minimal shading wherever skin is exposed, with shades of gray to show clothing folds, shadows and background items. He could accomplish strong effects with simple lines and expert shading.

Early in this volume, Sultry's tiger looks cartoonish compared to the rest of the art - is that a valid comment for a series in the newspaper comics? Later, horses look much more realistic as though Crane decided to improve such details in each panel, or maybe he utilized a support illustrator for certain details.

I recommend this series for anyone who enjoys comics art. I rate this four instead of five stars because, for the most part, the color Sunday pages did not add to the story continuity and only a few are included. The daily series are entertaining, especially when the Sweeney character is not around. Compared to "Terry and the Pirates" and its incorporation of the Sunday pages as a special set of extended continuity panels each week, original readers of Buz Sawyer were not able to experience such a rich experience during 1945 - 1947.

Overall, Crane's stories and artwork are much better than anything you'll see in today's papers.

The name Roy Crane should be enough to get most lovers of nostalgic adventure strips attention. Crane could couple both heroic and humor in his strips. His drawing is clean, crisp, refreshing and his stories ,while sometimes a bit of a stretch, draw you in and keep your attention. Whether young or old, whether the strip is an old friend or a new aquaintance, I believe you will love it. Highly recommended.
