Hermes Press announced that it will collect never-before-reprinted comic books based on Milton Caniff’s legendary Steve Canyon comic strip in two full color hardcover volumes, beginning next year. The first volume will collect the material that was included in the six issues of the late 1940s Harvey Comics reprints of the comic strip as well as unpublished materials.
The second Hermes Steve Canyon volume will feature the seven issues of Steve Canyon from the 1950s which appeared in the Dell Comics Four Color series; they contained original stories with artwork supervised by Caniff.
The original material for both volumes will be digitally restored. In addition to the original comic material, both volumes will contain both essays and supplementary material.
The first volume is set to ship in Summer 2011.
