    Description

    Milton Caniff Terry and the Pirates Daily Comic Strip Dragon Lady Original Art dated 10-3-36 (Chicago Tribune, 1936). From the second year of the feature, this daily stars the evil Dragon Lady, and she has the most horrible torture in mind for her captive... shaving off his mustache and washing out his hair product! This woman is pure evil. The strip is titled "The Lady Must Have Her Fun". It was created in ink and blue wash over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 20" x 5.5". The board is toned, and has started to split down the deep crease fold in the center, between the panels. Personalized and signed by Caniff in the lower margin. In Good condition.
