    Description

    Milton Caniff Terry and the Pirates Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 11-4-35 (Chicago Tribune, 1935). This daily hails from what many comic strip aficionados consider to be the peak period of the feature, when Noel Sickles was lending a hand to Milt Caniff in the drawing of Terry. An expert use of black shadows, blue wash to denote shading, and fast-paced storytelling, give this piece a mood of drama and even of menace. The image area of this daily, titled "The Lady Surrenders", measures 20" x 5.5", and the art is in Excellent condition.
