    George Wunder - Original Comic Strip Art for Terry and the Pirates Sunday, dated 3-27-60 (News Syndicate, 1960). One of the most enduring comic strips of all time, "Terry and the Pirates" was started in 1934 by Milton Caniff. In 1947 when Caniff started doing "Steve Canyon," he passed the helm of "Terry" over to George Wunder. Over the years "Terry" tended to take political stances and even took a hard line in the Cold War. This political posturing was partially to blame for the demise of the strip in 1973. The individual panels of this piece are on separate pieces of art board and glued on to the background. The image area is 25.5" x 17", and the art comes nicely framed with stamped plaques at the bottom. This will look great on the winning bidder's wall.
