    Description

    Milton Caniff - Comic Character Hand-Colored Print Display (1945-49). Cartoonist Milton Caniff often received requests from fans for original drawings of his Terry and the Pirates and Steve Canyon characters. While he would on occasion create a new piece of art for special requests, most fans were sent a hand-colored and personalized print. This large display board was put together by one of Caniff's personal friends, and was used to show examples of the art at special events. Included on this 32" x 21.5" sheet of black illustration board are prints of Steve Canyon, Delta, Hotshot Charlie, and a young Terry, along with a partial print of Connie; all have been personally inscribed and colored by hand by Caniff, using watercolor. In addition, an extra print of Burma is included. Overall condition is Good. From the Estate of Richard Commer.
