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.
