9781606993620: Buz Sawyer: The War in the Pacific (Vol. 1) (Roy Crane's Buz Sawyer)

World War II action/adventure from one of the all-time great cartoonists.

Roy Crane created the adventure comic strip with Wash Tubbs, and many a superhero owes a debt to Crane’s square-jawed, hard-hitting adventurer Captain Easy. But during World War II, he left the Captain Easy strip to create a more realistic fighting man, a Navy pilot named John Singer Sawyer, who fought in the Pacific Theater from 1943 until V-J Day in 1945.

This book, the first in a series reprinting the Buz Sawyer strip, reprints all of the daily strips published during World War II. Buz serves aboard an aircraft carrier, flies combat missions against the notorious Japanese Zeros, crash lands behind enemy lines, and is captured by a Japanese submarine.

The book also includes a selection of the best of the Sunday strips, which featured Buz Sawyer’s pal and gunner, Roscoe Sweeny.

Everywhere Buz goes, he finds high adventure and beautiful women―in fact, his fellow flyers kid him about his ability to find romance on even the most hostile Pacific island, where he meets a dangerous spy named Sultry (!). And when he goes home on leave, it is only to be caught up in a rivalry between rich heiress Tot Winter and girl-next-door Christy Jameson.

It features some of Crane’s most atmospheric drawing, aided by his expert use of Craftint tones, luscious romance, and exciting action scenes. These stories amply illustrate why Peanuts artist Charles Schulz called Roy Crane “a treasure.” Color and black-and-white comic strips throughout

About the Author:

Royston Campbell Crane (1901-1977), who signed his work Roy Crane, created the comic-strip characters Wash Tubbs, Captain Easy, and Buz Sawyer. His work continues to inspire cartoonists today.

Rick Norwood (b. 1942) is a comics historian, writer, mathematician, and professor. He wrote underground comics, founded the newspaper strip reprint publisher Manuscript Press in the 1970s, and is the editor of the magazine Comics Revue. He lives in Johnson City, Tennessee.

From Booklist:

One of the most influential early newspaper comics pioneers, Crane wrote and drew Wash Tubbs, one of the first adventure strips, for nearly 20 years. In 1943 he left Wash to create Buz Sawyer, about a World War II navy fighter pilot in the Pacific theater. In the first two years' worth of the black-and-white daily episodes, Buz and his comic-relief sidekick, gunner Roscoe Sweeney, are shot down on a Japanese-occupied island. In another sequence, Buz flies a captured Japanese torpedo-bomber on a special mission to enemy territory. The strips are stronger on action than characterization. Buz's most prominent personality trait, other than eagerness to fly heedlessly into danger to fight for his country, is his irresistibility to the ladies; no matter where his missions take him, he finds a gorgeous dame he can charm into helping him. Despite its simplicities and pervasive anti-Japanese racism, the six--decade-old strips remain entertaining, thanks to Crane's storytelling verve and his clean, compelling cartooning style, which he enhanced with his signature double-tone shading techniques.
