Press Release

Miss Lace is back and she’s with Hermes Press! Milton Caniff’s famous good girl, created just for servicemen during WW II, known to GI Joes everywhere as “Lace,” is available to all her fans in a deluxe hardcover art book reprinting the entire run of the strip. Move over Rita Hayworth, sultry, sassy Miss Lace and her daily adventures are being given royal treatment with a host of extras including a detailed intro by noted Caniff historian R.C. Harvey. Also included in this deluxe reprint of the strip are unused art, documentary materials, advertising art, and more.

Male Call is one of Caniff’s finest efforts and has been unavailable for almost thirty years; this situation will finally be corrected with this archival reprint of the strip.
