While it is great to read these Steve Canyon strips, the reproduction here is not great, with some faint reproduction and some pages that are misaligned so that the top strip is cutoff at the top of the page. I didn’t have trouble with the earlier volumes, but Checker did get a number of complaints of this sort while they were still operating. In these 1952-1953 strips, Steve tries to recover a lost Soviet missile in Alaska, is then trapped in the Canadian wilderness with a jewel thief, and then takes over an air force base troubled with relations with their civilian neighbors. Women fall for Steve everywhere, of course. The first adventure comes across the best, but all are enjoyable.
