    Description

    Milton Caniff Terry and the Pirates Daily Comic Strip Original Art, dated 5-7-40 (News Syndicate Co., Inc., 1940). A dizzying fall (Panel 1) looks like certain doom for April Kane -- until that portly rascal Captain Blaze hastens to the rescue, using his very bulk as a buffer. Heiress Raven Sherman states the obvious (Panel 2) while Blaze springs into action. Three of Caniff's more popular recurring characters, all in a concentration of high-contrast excitement from a master of mood-building B&W imagery. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 20" x 6". Excellent condition.
