    Description

    Milton Caniff Terry and the Pirates Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 11-26-46 (Field Enterprises, 1946). Just two months away from his plan to leave Terry and launch a new signature strip (Steve Canyon), Caniff remains fully invested in Terry. The dialogue, in this episode titled "Someone Else is Cozy in Her Nest", is crisp and witty, the art has all the right deep contrasts, and the facial expressions are vivid and intense. Ink and white paint over graphite on Bristol board, with an image area of 21.5" x 6.5". Light toning, production stains in the margins (and just into the first panel), and marginal push-pin punctures. In Very Good condition.
