    Description

    Milton Caniff Terry and the Pirates Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 3-19-37 (Chicago Tribune/NY News Syndicate Inc., 1937). A degenerate-looking rascal plots disaster for good guys Terry Lee, Pat Ryan, and Connie Confucius in this evocative study in light-and-shadow intensity. Caniff's evolving command of cinematic lighting is especially evident in his blue-wash shading -- originally intended to cue the engraving plant to apply gray tones, but quite lovely in its original hue. Ink and wash over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 20" x 5.5". Marred only by a full-width adhesive stain at bottom area, and by a lettering glitch in Panel 3 -- otherwise in Very Good condition.
