Created by Alex Raymond when he was deactivated from the Marines after the Second World War, 'Rip Kirby' was urbane and cerebral, and used scientific methods as often as he used his fists when solving crimes and mysteries.

I agree with Diego Cordoba (see his review) completely: 'It's a pity that no major restoration was done to the strip'.

3.0 von 5 Sternen At long last: Rip Kirby!!! 9. Februar 2010
Von Diego Cordoba - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
We finally get Alex Raymond's masterpiece back in print. Rip Kirby was done by Raymond when he found that his strips were taken over by someone else when he came back from the war, so he opted to create a new one and would for the first time ink with a pen. His pen and ink style on Rip Kirby would be the norm with the realistic strips for many years to come. Astute readers will notice that Raymond would revert to a brush later (drawing in a style similar to Caniff), where he would use bold brush strokes. He would eventually come back to his pen and ink style, which would influence countless other comic strip artists. He would, unfortunately, die in a car accident a couple of years later and Rip Kirby was continued by John Prentice, a capable artist on his own right, but far from Raymond.

This new reprint by IDW seems to be the definite one taken from the "best available proofs" of the strip. Actually, if these are the best proofs IDW had on hand, I wonder where the French, Spanish and Italian versions got their proofs from as they are ten times better than the American proofs. It's a pity that no major restoration was done to the strip as this version by IDW pales by comparison to the European versions. The main problem I see with the IDW books (aside of the average quality of reprinting), is that the strips are reprinted too small and the books are too heavy. Can anyone tell me how to read these books, aside of putting them on top of a table?

All in all, I've got mixed feelings about the book, but this being the only worthwhile version available in English, will have to do.

p.s.: For the collectors out there, try to check the French version published in the 90's (alas only one volume was printed) as the art is so crisp and clean, it makes all other versions pale by comparison.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great postwar dramatic comic strip 10. Dezember 2009
Von Jim Davis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Alex Raymond's Rip Kirby is a worthy addition to IDW's Library of American Comics series. This series was groundbreaking in a number of respects. It dealt with a number of mature subjects in a refreshingly realistic way. It was also drawn with a brush when most comics were (and still are) pen and ink renderings. Rip Kirby was always a daily strip so this volume has no color at all except in the introductory material.

The artwork is wonderful and well reproduced - as well reproduced as it can be at this stage without major "restoration". Fortunately, very little seems to need anything so drastic. Curiously, there is an abrupt change in style towards the end of Chapter 7 "Bleak Prospects" and the beginning of Chapter 8 "Terror on the Thames" almost as if Raymond was spelled by an assistant while on vacation.

The stories are for the most part solid. The first two chapters are written as classic "whodunits" but that formula does not work particularly well in daily strip format and the remaining stories are straightforward crime dramas.

Characterization is also strong. Kirby and Desmond are likable and interesting while the villains are just great - ruthless and deadly. The only weak point is Kirby's girl friend Honey Dorian. She seems completely bland when compared to her competition, the mesmerizing Pagan Lee.

All in all, highly recommended to comic strip enthusiasts of all ages.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Great classic, bad edition 4. Februar 2010
Von Andoni Iturbe-Ormaetxe Kort - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
"Rip Kirby" by Alex Raymond is one of the best daily strips ever published. His job, from 1946 to 1956, is amazing, beautiful, very good plots (with the help of Ward Greene and Fred Dickenson) and wonderful characters.
IDW, with extraordinary editions of "Terry and the Pirates" or "Scorchy Smith", has lost a great opportunity for make the best edition of this classic. Where are the pristine syndicate proofs? In my country, Spain, we have a better edition, with all the Raymond's work and the beginnig of Prentice. The definition of the strips is sometimes horrible. Please, WHERE ARE THE BEST POSSIBLE SOURCES? I don't understand. Sorry

5.0 von 5 Sternen Alex Raymond's RIP KIRBY vol 1 A Masterpiece 2. Dezember 2009
Von Mustafa Jackson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Alex Raymond's RIP KIRBY: The First Modern Detective - Complete Comic Strips 1946-1948 is the first volume in what will prove to be an exceptional collection. This first edition in this collection is magnificent. The book is formatted well and has a nice simple design structure. I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone who loves great illustration and a great story.

Alex Raymond was one of the finest practitioners of the lost art of newspaper serial storytelling. His illustrations of handsome men, beautiful women and amazing settings are one of the reasons the period between 1935 and 1960 are considered by some as the Golden Age of newspaper serials.

I cannot express how pleased I am that IDG Publications has taken the time and effort to produce his amazing illustrator's work. This book along with Tom Roberts' ALEX RAYMOND: His Life and Art (ISBN: 9781886937789) are a must have for everyone who enjoys experiencing great art from a time when men like Mr. Raymond elevated the art of newspaper serials to high-art.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Golden Age ... Again !! 9. Januar 2010
Von Ganapathy Subramaniam - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is definitely the Golden Age of reprints! A glance at this book will affirm it.

This book is wonderfully made, leather(atleast looks like it) bound!, *very large* book, printed on non-glossy heavy paper, brings out the fantastic black ink work, of which, Alex Raymond is a master.

The book begins with few articles introducing Alex, and his work, pictures of him, a few flyers that promoted the strip when first published, along with some pictures, where you can see Alex Raymond with the beautiful models who were the secret behind his stunningly realistic looking figures. A traditional figure artist of perfection, in line with Hal Foster, Burne Hogarth, Sy Barry and the gang, he is undoubtedly at his best in Rip Kirby.

This is part of a series (atleast there is a Volume two in the works)

This volume 1 contains 8 complete stories from 1946-48.

1. The Chip Faraday Murder
2. The Hicks Formula
3. Enter: The mangler
4. Fatal Forgeries
5. Past Imperfect
6. The Dolls House
7. Bleak prospects
8. Terror on the Thames

Those who love Alex raymond's art work will simply love it, each frame is a comic book artist's study. Composition, Figure drawing, Light and shade, drama, suspense, angles, inking..all is found between the covers of this lovely collection.

Those who love Golden age realistic detective, adventure comics will ofcourse love this. This can also serve as an introduction to the Golden age to any young reader, to be awestuck on the efforts of the artists that went into these amazing stories.
