Rip Kirby to be reprinted by IDW
Announced at The Beat, IDW is adding Alex Raymond’s “Rip Kirby” to its Library of American Comics series. The five-volume archival hardcover series will contain every daily from the strip’s inception in 1946 through Alex Raymond’s tragic death in 1956.
More info from the release, from the blog of Chris Ryall, editor in chief and publisher of IDW:
Rip Kirby was the first hip and cool detective in newspaper comics. Created by Alex Raymond when he was deactivated from the Marines after World War II, it was a fresh approach to the genre, a departure from the prevailing hard-boiled style of detective fiction. Rip Kirby was urbane and cerebral, and used scientific methods as often as he used his fists when solving crimes and mysteries. But there was still plenty of action — Kirby was an All-American athlete and decorated war hero.
