Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Red Barry was one of the most visually innovative adventure strips of the mid-1930s, combining fluid brushwork and noir shadows (often in bold blues and purples) with figures that were constantly in motion, plus a level of violence that brought cries of protest from its syndicate. 'Red Barry' and 'Secret Agent X-9' were King Features's answers to the Tribune Syndicate's popular 'Dick Tracy' by Chester Gould (no relation to Will). While 'X-9' continued for decades under hands of varying quality, 'Red Barry' by Will Gould was an auter's vision that lasted less than four years and is considered one of comics history's great unsung matsterpieces..." -- Front flap of dust jacket.
