Buz Sawyer Vol. 3: Typhoons and Honeymoons

$39.99
✔ In print

Buz Sawyer — adventurer, bon vivant, and former bachelor — can't let a little thing like romance and marriage slow him down. Buz knows that Christy is the only woman for him —— brave, beautiful, and able to handle herself when the going gets tough, and just the kind of woman Buz needs when the chips are down —— a lover and a fighter.

And indeed, Christy has her mettle tested, because the road to marriage is a rocky one. First, Buz has to survive a hurricane in the Caribbean, a typhoon in the South Seas, and a stone cold killer with a deceptively mild manner and the innocuous-sounding name of Harry Sparrow. As if that weren’t enough, Buz gets himself caught in a political hurricane when he gets trapped behind the Iron Curtain just as the Cold War heats up. And if you think Buz and Christy's African honeymoon is a picnic... think again.

All of this is brought vividly and gorgeously to life through Roy Crane's sure-footed writing and stunning storytelling, a rollicking series of adventures filled with knock-out women, brutal assassins, and extremely bad weather.

This volume also includes some of the best Buz Sawyer Sunday strips (starring Buz's pal Rosco Sweeney), in full color!
