This second and final volume concludes the complete reprinting of this often underrated, important, and hard-hitting undercover detective series from the mid-1930s. One of the most visually innovative adventure strips of the mid-1930s, Red Barry was King Features' answer to the Tribune Syndicate'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 four years, but is today considered one of comics history's great unsung masterpieces. Working undercover for the police, Red insinuates himself into the ranks of organized crime. Only one person, Inspector Scott, is aware of Red's role, which means Barry can't rely on getting help from the cops. His dangerous missions among the criminal element played out with a level of violence that caused no small upset with Gould's publishers. Volume 2 completes the collection of the series' daily strips and color Sundays.
