    Description

    George Wunder Terry and the Pirates Sunday Comic Strip Original Art, dated 6-1-47 (Chicago Tribune Syndicate, 1947). Heroic Terry Lee is trailing a master criminal known as Ermine. This superbly composed, high-contrast episode dates from the first six months of Wunder's tenure, when he was following the lead of creator Milton Caniff while gradually insinuating that distinctive Wunder style. Could there have been a tougher assignment than following Caniff on his own signature feature? Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 25.5" x 17". Each panel has been carefully glued to a backing board. The logo stat shows some glue staining. There is a stripped in text correction in the second panel. Otherwise, the art is in Very Good condition.
