Review of Alley Oop: The First Time Travel Adventure
One of the great pleasures I've had over the past few years is in discovering newspaper strip comics. I never really read them much as a kid, so experiencing strips such as Terry and the Pirates, X-9 Secret Agent Corrigan, Steve Canyon and others has opened up not only a whole new comics world, but also an appreciation of how daily strips differ in so many ways from standard comic books and graphic novels.
IDW's Library of American Comics has done a stellar job of presenting these classic strips in handsome new editions. I was pleased to review one of their more recent collections, Alley Oop: The First Time Travel Adventure, over at The Comics Alternative. Please check it out!
