    With Wash Tubbs, Roy Crane created the American adventure comic strip. But his greatest creation was the CAPTAIN EASY Sunday page. Commencing with this volume, Fantagraphics is reprinting the complete run of Roy Crane's CAPTAIN EASY in four volumes. In this first installment, Captain Easy visits a lost city, battles pirates, dons a diving suit in search of sunken treasure. And everywhere he goes, he finds beautiful women, or beautiful women find him. All of the pages in this book, with one exception, are from color scans of Sunday pages printed in newspapers. The one exception is the strip for October 6, 1935, where no color newspaper page could be found. That page has been hand colored in-house from a scan of a page in a newspaper that ran the strip in black and white. Color illus. 132p.

    Rafah, a town at the bottommost tip of the Gaza Strip, has long been a notorious flashpoint in the bitter Middle East conflict. Buried deep in the archives is one bloody incident, in 1956, that left 111 Palestinians shot dead by Israeli soldiers. In a quest to get to the heart of what happened, Joe Sacco immerses himself in the daily life of Rafah and the neighboring town of Khan Younis, uncovering Gaza past and present. As in Palestine and Safe Area Goradze, his unique visual journalism renders a contested landscape in brilliant, meticulous detail. Spanning fifty years, moving fluidly between one war and the next, Sacco's most ambitious work to date transforms a critical conflict into an intimate and immediate experience. Illustrations throughout. 432p.

Wellington Wimpy. Presented here for the first time in its complete, full-color, uncut glory! Meanwhile, the 'dailies' section rocks! Illus., color/b&w. 168p.
