Complete Little Orphan Annie, Vol. 16
Harold Gray (w & a & c)
Annie might feel as if she’s between a hammer and an anvil, but those are about the only menaces she avoids during the early 1950s! In less than two years of stories, the little orphan gets run over by a car, shot with a pistol, whacked with a bludgeon, firebombed in her bed, shoved in a gunny sack, caught in a tornado, flung overboard in a raging storm, and thrown alive into an underground cemetery vault. Meanwhile, “Daddy” Warbucks, Punjab, and the Asp are a thousand miles away, with no clue to the whereabouts of America’s spunkiest kid.

“Here Today, Gone Tomorrow” reprints all daily and color Sunday strips from October 29, 1951 through July 5, 1953. Included are five stories replete with greed and murder, atomic boats, blackmailers, poisoners, and deadly mutineers—yet also filled with good Samaritans and friendship from the most unexpected quarter, while also posing the question: can romance survive in a town called Futility?

Get swept up in this historical graphic novel trilogy rich in great events and human tragedies from the First World War, the Russian Revolution, the Popular Front, and the Spanish Civil War.

In this tour-de-force from award winning writer/artist Jean-Pierre Gibrat, the honor and glory sought in the Great War (seen in Book One of this series) have become mutilated and blurred memories. The October Revolution in Russia exudes hope in the hearts of the oppressed and draws in Mattéo, the son of a Spanish anarchist. But first he stops in Collioure to visit his mother. That same evening he sees his beloved Juliet for a brief but memorable moment, and the next day, with his father’s friend Gervasio, Mattéo departs for Petrograd with camera in hand to document the advent of the more just and honorable world of his ideals. But once there, he learns that those ideals may very well become victim of the disputes and differences between the various factions leading the revolution.
