This Is Splendid: Secret Agent X-9

On the Isotope’s new arrivals rack today is the long awaited deluxe printing of the classic late 60’s newspaper strip X-9: Secret Agent Corrigan, created by SF’s most beloved son, Dashiell Hammett (yes, that Hammett, of Maltese Falcon fame), and written and drawn by two of the best creators the comics industry has ever known, Archie Goodwin and the legendary Al Williamson.

Fans of all good things in the world (like Mad Men, Nick and Nora, Wally Wood’s Cannon, and those awesome early James Bond flicks) will go weak in the knees and fall head over heels for this absolutely gorgeous book. Thanks to IDW this oversized comprehensive collection is printed directly from Williamson’s personal proofs and is just… wow. You’re definitely going to want to pick this baby up.
