IDW Publishing announced at its Wizard World Los Angeles panel on Saturday that it will publish a fully authorized six-book series collecting the entirety of Milton Caniff 's groundbreaking newspaper adventure strip Terry and the Pirates.

The Sunday pages will be reproduced in their original color, alongside the daily black-and-white strips.

Terry and the Pirates provided the vehicle for Caniff's maturation both as an artist and as a storyteller. He set the strip in exotic China, where historic events then occurring in the region during the 1930s provided the raw material from which he blended fantasy and reality to create an extraordinary graphic narrative. Howard Chaykin, who has written the introduction to Volume One, said, "It's historically the first, and for my money, greatest example of what we do. The evolution of what Caniff did with Terry in his first year is unbelievable. It's pure core storytelling."

The story introduces young Terry Lee, his adult pal Pat Ryan, their sidekick Connie, as well as an array of unforgettable brigands such as Captains Judas and Blaze, and the two toughest women to ever sail on the China Seas: the alluring Burma and the inimitable Dragon Lady.

Volume One, to be published in July, contains more than 800 consecutive strips, from the series' beginning in October 1934 through the end of 1936. An informed essay provides biographical material, and places Caniff šs seminal work in the context of both comic strip history and of the real-world events reflected in the stories.

The Complete Terry and the Pirates also launches a new imprint for IDW: The Library of American Comics. "There's no better comic strip to inaugurate The Library of American Comics than Milton Caniff's masterpiece," said series editor and designer Dean Mullaney.

"This is the definitive edition of the definitive adventure series. The books will be oversized, 11 inches by 8.5 inches oblong. All Sunday pages have been restored from the original color pages culled from my private collection, and supplemented by the Cartoon Research Library at Ohio State University."
