Heroic "wide-awake American boy" Terry Lee sends greetings to a fellow cartoonist, Morris Weiss, in this unique relic of the earliest stages of Caniff's famous high-adventure feature.

Ink and wet-brush watercolors over graphite on off-white textured cardstock. Image area, 6" x 8.5". The tints remain vivid for the most part, with slight fading in the blue shadowed area at lower right. Toned from exposure to ambient lighting (darker at far edges) and in Excellent condition.
