This week, The Village Voice included Hermes Press’ reprint edition of Milt Caniff’s Male Call in their list of 2011’s Best Comics and Graphic Novels!
Caniff’s thick-lined style is legendary, from his work on Terry and the Pirates in the Great Depression, to his Steve Canyon during the Cold War, Male Call is Caniff adding humor to the life of female-deprived G.I.s. With his pin-up queen Miss Lace, who oozes cheesecake in every panel, Male Call was originally exclusive to military newspapers.
We’re pretty darned happy with Male Call: The Complete Newspaper Strips: 1942-1946, and so is The Village Voice.
Check it out for yourself, and we guarantee you will be, too.
