    Description

    Milton Caniff Terry and the Pirates Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 12-31-35 (Chicago Tribune, 1935). This New Year's Eve 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. The image area of this daily, titled "To the Dog House We Must Go", measures 20" x 5.5", and the art is in Very Good condition, with overall toning, edge wear, and soiling.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
