Milton Caniff’s classic Terry and the Pirates newspaper strip series has too much adventure and excitement for just its own title…so that’s all the reason necessary for it to also be the main feature in another comic book reprint series. Published by ACG Comics, the Terry stories in this series spend a bit of time focusing in on the villainous Dragon Lady (including pinups!), a character whose popularity and legend in some respects even outgrew that of the heroes. In these stories we see that she is not just a cold hard killer—there’s a part of her that’s drawn to Terry’s dashing protector, Pat Ryan, even as she ensnares him. In this, the richness that made Caniff’s work such a breath of fresh air back in the 1930s, shines through.

Moreover, the whole gang is here, including young Terry, cheerful yet hapless Connie, and all the other characters that have enabled the series to live on in the hearts of fans. Reprinted in black-and-white, with backup features including war stories and other “amazing” tales.
