Review quote

"A wonderful new way to experience Alex Raymond's creation, and does grand justice to the artistic brilliance of the strip. It's a must-have for fans, and a must-see for those who've never had the pleasure of reading the original series before." - Forbes.com 'this is wonderful escapism, packed to the rafters with action, last minute escapes and lurid kinkiness.' - SFX

'This is an absolute "must have" for anyone who considers themselves a comics aficionado or armchair science fiction historian.' - B&N Book Blog

"Titan Books gives this collection the star treatment it deserves, faithfully reproducing the original strips on a high-quality stock of gently off-white paper that avoids the too-bright reproduction of other collections. If you don't have the time to read all 200+ pages of this "coffee-table" book in one sitting, merely dig in at any point and be wowed by Raymond's phantasmal world called Mongo." - MTV

'Recaptured in the glorious, four-color tones that evoke the sense of old newsprint, Titan has managed to retain the look and feel of what it must have been like to read the series as it unfolded from week to week, where Raymond managed to cram non-stop action and adventure into a single page of panels and stlll get a reader to return each week. This lovingly-presented volume should appeal to both new readers and those who might have even read it when it first came out 75 years ago.' - Fanboy Comics

'if the first volume is any indication, this series will be prized by longtime fans of Golden Age comics and new admirers alike.' - Playback STL

"As far as presentation goes, this is one huge and good looking book. Much like Titan's other library editions to have come out and impress fans over the years." - Comic Attack
