    Milton Caniff - Original Art Illustration (1951). Milton Caniff - the name conjures up images of rogues and femmes fatales, flowing from the pages of Terry and the Pirates. This piece, commissioned during the Korean conflict, is a tribute to the military men and women of this nation at Christmas time. It is possible that Caniff used this as his Christmas card in 1951. As heartfelt and relevant today as it was 50 years ago, it is a dedication to our fighting men and women abroad, reminding them that they are in our thoughts. Caniff, one of the foremost strip artists of the 20th-century, had a major influence on the style of many future artists, including such industry giants as Joe Kubert and Alex Toth. The art has an indentation at the top right corner, and a minor crease in the middle of the page, and measures 14.5" x 16.5".
