    Hooray! It finally arrived: “The Complete Little Orphan Annie, volume nine: Saints and Cynics, Daily and Sunday Comics 1940-1941” The original publication date was supposed to be months ago, but these books are a huge undertaking with a limited readership so it was delayed. I have every volume published so far, from Vol 1, 1924-1927 to the present one, and I haunt Amazon until they start listing the next volume for pre-order. They cost about $35 each, which is cheap at the price for a long-time Annie fan such as myself. As a kid in the 50’s I read the strips while Gray was still drawing them, then later, in the 70’s, I worked at the Oregon State University Library, and would spend my lunch hour down in the microfilm room reading Annie (and other strips) in the Chicago Tribune from the thirties and forties, but I never could find much about Annie’s history in the twenties until I got vols 1-3. Annie was a sweet-looking child of 8 or 9 back then, and slowly grew into a 12-year-old by the thirties, where she stayed for the rest of her incarnation with Harold Gray. This current incarnation looks to be more like 13-14, and is more volitile than Gray’s Annie, which (I suppose) is consistant with her appearing to be entering adolescence. Anyway, I highly recommend this series to all the Annie fans. Each volume costs about as much as a dinner in a nice restaurant, but will entertain you much longer!

    to Night-Gaunt49: Yes there is a compendium (of sorts). It covers 1935-1945, but is not complete (unlike the series which IS complete). It is called "ARF! The Life and Times of Little Orphan Annie. It’s on sale at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/times-Little-Orphan-Annie-1935-1945/dp/0870000985/ref=sr_1_15?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1371701272&sr=1-15&keywords=little+orphan+annie

    Great! I’ve been waiting on pins and needles for Volume 9. Like you, I have the whole series and I can’t wait now to get my hands on it.

    Thanks, NG. I didn’t know about the compendium. I’ll look for it.

    Yes some of the latest discoveries come from high in the air. Aircraft and satellites.
