Daily OCD Extra: Buz Sawyer in Booklist
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Roy CranereviewsDaily OCD 15 May 2011 12:22 PM

The new issue of Booklist contains a review of Roy Crane's Buz Sawyer Vol. 1: The War in the Pacific, excerpted below:

Buz Sawyer Vol. 1: The War in the Pacific

"Although the wartime setting of the strip makes it inherently more serious than Wash Tubbs — the Japanese troops, even as racially caricatured as they are here, are a deadlier foe than the often-buffoonish antagonists of the earlier strip — Buz Sawyer features the same seamless blend of derring-do and humor, both in its story lines and in Crane’s economical, slightly cartoonish artwork, which had made Wash Tubbs one of the most popular strips of the era and which would keep Buz flying for more than four decades." — Gordon Flagg
