Om boka

As a famed hero of the mystery novels by Earl Derr
Biggers, Inspector Charlie Chan reached even greater heights in a series of
popular movies. As actor Sidney Toler was preparing to replace Warner Oland as
the wily police detective in 1938, Alfred Andriola was tapped to create a
newspaper strip version of the character. Andriola was secretary to Milton
(Terry and the Pirates) Caniff and Chan would be his first cartooning effort,
but with some friends in Caniff's orbit, Andriola succeeded in producing what
The World Encyclopedia of Comics says is "among the best comic strips in the
'Caniff school.'"

The pride of the
Honolulu Police Department uses his intellect more than his fists to solve cases
of international intrigue, and the syndicate's initial promotion called Charlie
Chan "A new mystery strip, totally devoid of guns and gangsters" to separate it
from Dick Tracy and his many hardboiled imitators. Not that the strip is devoid
of action and romanceChan's tall, handsome assistant, Kirk Barrow, shoulders
those "difficult" burdens with aplomb. Featuring the first complete year of
daily strips, from October 1938 to November 1939, this volume of LOAC Essentials
offers readers exciting adventures, snappy dialogue, and arresting art, making
it a fascinating complement to Caniff's own efforts on Terry and the Pirates
during this period.

A key early work from the creator of the long-running detective series Kerry Drake presented in a format that is as close as one can get to experiencing it as a daily comic.
