Great book in a
superb series I have bought the entire five volume set.
Alex Raymond was one of the finest artists in the business.

Stepping Into the Shoes of a Legend 2 Oct. 2012
By Robert Blume - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I wasn't originally planning to purchase additional IDW Rip Kirby purchases beyond the four Alex Raymond volumes. But I'm very glad I did. I had forgotten how good John Prentice was. I always liked his comic book work, and he takes it to a new level with Rip. It must have been daunting to step in for the legendary Raymond under such difficult circumstances (death by auto accident). Prentice shows no letdown at all. In my opinion, he not only builds on what Raymond did...he improves on it. This fat volume presents Prentice's first work on Rip Kirby from late 1956 through mid-1959. And he continued to be the creative force behind the strip for another four decades.

IDW has produced several other excellent series offering classic newspaper strips. I have their Terry and the Pirates series as well as all their Little Orphan Annie volumes to date. And after this Prentice volume I am ready to sign on for as many Rip books as IDW wants to publish.

The Prentice Kirby 8 Nov. 2012
By Crawford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Meaning no disrespect to Alex Raymond but I've always felt John Prentice's take on Rip Kirby was superior. Like others have mentioned, I too grew up on Prentice's version of the bespectacled criminologist and his valet Desmond. RIP KIRBY VOLUME 5 brings back priceless memories of me as a 9-year-old boy sprawled on my grandmother's kitchen floor reading the funnies in 1962 and discovering Prentice's artwork for the first time. I'd never encountered crosshatching and chiaroscuro style inking before. I recall thinking I wished I could draw half as well as Prentice (still do). RIP KIRBY VOLUME 5 is handsomely bound and packaged, the artwork is brilliant, the story plots varied and exciting. I will certainly buy every volume of Prentice's Rip Kirby IDW publishes and hope they print every strip he ever did. Hats off, Mullaney, Canwell & crew; let 'em rip!

Better than Raymond 3 Nov. 2012
By TM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The printing quality is much more better than the quality of the Alex Raymond books. Now, there are no dots in the edge of the drawing line. Or if there are I can' t see them. :)

I am looking forward to the next Prentice book!

A great legacy continued..... 18 Sept. 2012
By Jane Loeffler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Everyone loved Alex Raymond's Rip Kirby. The strips have been reprinted numerous times in different formats. I am always bewildered by the lack of appreciation for John Prentice's decades long contribution to Rip Kirby. His version is the one I discovered and enjoyed for many years. Finally these excellent stories are being collected in a great hard cover format for generations to enjoy. I am looking forward to many volumes of Prentice's work being savored. Buy your copy now and let IDW know that these fine projects will be supported!

Raymond is not really missed 18 Oct. 2012
By Jim Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was very happy to learn that IDW decided to extend its Rip Kirby line into the John Prentice era. Volume 4 had some Prentice as he finished up the storyline Raymond was working on at the time of his death; this volume is all Prentice. Prentice was the perfect choice to continue the strip.

That said, the stories in this volume, while well written and entertaining, lack some of the raw emotion seen in previous volumes. There is none of the viciousness of the Mangler and the raw sex appeal of Pagan Lee is absent as well. We do get the "girl next door" wholesomeness of Honey Dorian and the creepy sliminess of Silk Carter, however. I wonder if there was some current editorial direction to tone things down a bit? No hint of that in the introduction though.

Two of the stories in this volume touch on supernatural themes. These seem a little out of place in a strip noted for realism over the fantastic. Also, Desmond continues to play the buffoon in this volume. This seems out of character and unnecessary. Desmond had been established as much more worldly by this time.

There is an excellent introduction featuring fine insights into Prentice's life and times with reminiscences by his friend and fellow cartoonist Leonard Starr. There is also a fine selection of Prentice's other artwork.

Highly recommended. I hope this volume does well enough to warrant some more.
