Caniff uses dialogue and the art to immerse the reader.

I need to look at other publications by them, but to date I'd say this company needs to totally rethink their production pipeline.

Print quality is excellent, the paper quality as well, the book binding is strong, which is a good point for a 350 pages volume.

As I've already reviewed the first two volumes of this splendid and handsome six-part set, I won't repeat myself except to say if you loved the first two, you'll love volume three. After completing volume two, I was disappointed only in that I would have to wait another few months to receive the next edition. My guess is that if I had all six volumes at once, I would read them all too quickly, ruining the anticipation of awaiting the next in line.

In a nutshell, the magnificent quality has been continued, the stories keep getting better, and all three volumes truly look impressive upon my bookshelf. If you haven't bought the first volume yet and are a Milton Caniff fan, shame on you. Order them now while they are still in print.

This is the excellent third volume to this comprehensive reprinting of the classic "Terry and the Pirates" series. I have wanted to read this series, but missed out on the previous reprint series done by NBM several years back (being a poor student at the time, I could not afford the multiple expensive volumes).

Continuing from the 2nd volume, T&P story comes on stronger. We get more of the Dragon Lady and get introduced to a new character who will continue into the next volume.

I found the beginning of Terry and the Pirates vol 3 to be sluggish. Terry's puppy-love strips were tedious, though I suppose accurate for the period, and the volume's first central plot's big twist just lacked impact. Perhaps more specifically, the new villain it introduces had too much build up, and too little pay off to hold my interest.

That all said, the book kicks back into gear with the reintroduction of the Dragon Lady, and several consecutive plots following there after. If you are a fan of retro action comics, retro racial stereotypes, and long running interconnected plotlines and characters, this is a must read.

Terry and the Pirates

I have been reading and collecting Terry for a long time, I had found some reprints of various parts of the Terry series, but I had never saw a integral reprint. As such, this is already an achievement, welcomed by all the Terry's fans.

The first thing to salute is the fact that the editor could go to the end of the task. So many, in the realm of Comics, starts an integral reprint and give up in the middle ?

The 6 volumes of the series covers the complete cycle of the adventures of Terry. The best editing feature is that the publishing chronology is respected, that is the color Sundays pages alternate with the black and white weekly, which allows a chronological reading. Those who had only the color Sundays had problems to understand the story.

An integral edition allows to see the evolution of the characters, the style and the scenario. This implies that some volumes are not as good as others, but you have the whole thing to choose from.

I have compared the editing characteristics with several older editions :

NBM-1992 Color Sundays, Nostalgia1977 and the French Futuropolis-1985.

Those three chose a format of two strips per page, rather than 3 for this edition.

This choice reduces the panel size from a 83*70mm to 66*55mm (example comparing the same panel), a reduction of almost a third of the surface. This is a pity, but I have to agree that the total number of volumes would have been bigger with a two strips per page option.

Print quality is excellent, the paper quality as well, the book binding is strong, which is a good point for a 350 pages volume.

The header and trailers parts are very informative, lots of pictures and useful background information on Caniff and the development of the serie.

To conclude, a collection worth buying, which should also be proposed as one ordering item, easy to order and delivered as one item.

Along with Hal Foster's "Prince Valiant" these strips by Milton Caniff should be mandatory reading for everyone who enjoys any style of comics art. Although "Terry and the Pirates" has a somewhat repetitive theme of encounters with "pirates" and capture, these are the "mcGuffins" as these strips are all about memorable characters and their interactions with humor, realistic emotions and insight of the times.
Caniff's characters can be a bit exaggerated and cartoonish, but it is after all a comic strip -- look past that and notice the expressions, intricate backgrounds, the ripples of the sea - and especially enjoy the dialogue. I know of no other strips that have such a level of detailed dialogue, yet at times panels may contain no dialogue - several in a row - with the art clearly continuing the story effortlessly. Caniff uses dialogue and the art to immerse the reader. The ability of the reader to read pages at a time, rather than wait a day at a time to read current strips, really enhances the enjoyment of the story in a book such as this. The Sunday panels are in rich colors that take you back to another time.
This volume has a rather long stretch without Terry, but enjoy April Kane and her interaction with the men in the plot. I'm looking forward to volume four.
