    Harold Gray s Little Orphan Annie, in my opinion, is the best continuity strip ever Having first read several of her stories in the long out of print Arf The Life and Hard Times of Little Orphan Annie, 1935 1945, I am thrilled to see IDW and the Library of American Comics reprint the series from the beginning.

    Ahh, nostalgia for the 50 s and spreading the Chicago Tribune out on the living room floor to read the comics Dick Tracy and Little Orphan Annie with their intricate plots and wonderful violence Now a days, Dick Tracy is a ghastly joke of a strip with incompetent writing and even worse art work Publication of a daily Orphan Annie strip ceased last month But any fan can get back into that world with this wonderful series of books with all the daily strips for two years and many of the Sunday Ahh, nostalgia for the 50 s and spreading the Chicago Tribune out on the living room floor to read the comics Dick Tracy and Little Orphan Annie with their intricate plots and wonderful violence Now a days, Dick Tracy is a ghastly joke of a strip with incompetent writing and even worse art work Publication of a daily Orphan Annie strip ceased last month But any fan can get back into that world with this wonderful series of books with all the daily strips for two years and many of the Sunday panels Continuous stories instead of chopped up episodes like from other anthologies Of course, the constant monologues on the value of work and self reliance can get pretty boring One keeps wishing the Asp and Punjab would show up Bit Daddy can still get in there and clear out a cellar full of gangsters armed only with a hatchet And there are surprises, like Daddy promoting unions and government programs for Farmers Well, that will all change when FDR gets elected Darn, when will the Asp and Punjab show up Must be patient
