In Volume 6, Rip Kirby enters the Swinging Sixties and artist John Prentice has made the strip completely his own. He would soon receive the National Cartoonist Society award for “Best Story Strip Cartoonist” in 1966 and 1967. Fred Dickenson, who had been writing the strip with series originator Alex Raymond, keeps the continuity going for Prentice’s exquisite art. The strips are reproduced from the original King Features Syndicate proofs, insuring that every daily will look even better than when they were first published in newspapers over fifty years ago.
