This second and final volume concludes the complete reprinting of thisoften underrated, important, and hard-hitting undercover detective series fromthe mid-1930s. One of the most visually innovative adventure strips ofthe mid-1930s, Red Barry was King Features' answer to the TribuneSyndicate's popular Dick Tracy by Chester Gould.
Red Barry by Will Gould(no relation to Chester) was an auteur's vision that lasted less than fouryears, but is today considered one of comics history's great unsungmasterpieces. Working undercover for the police, Red insinuates himselfinto the ranks of organized crime.
Only one person, Inspector Scott, is aware ofRed's role, which means Barry can't rely on getting help from thecops.
His dangerous missions among the criminal element played out with a levelof violence that caused no small upset with Gould'spublishers. Volume 2 completes the collection of the series' dailystrips and color Sundays.
