    Description

    Milton Caniff Terry and the Pirates Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 12-15-42 (News Syndicate Co., 1942). Caniff had sought to enlist for uniformed duty during WWII, but a 4-F classification left him stranded in civilian life. So the master cartoonist turned his signature strip ever more ferociously to boost the Allied Campaign, among other self-generated war-effort projects. Here is a fine, suspenseful example from that crucial period in Caniff's development. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 21.5" x 6.5". Faint edge-toning. Excellent condition.
