About Milton Caniff

Milton Arthur Paul Caniff (February 28, 1907 – April 3, 1988) was an American cartoonist famous for the Terry and the Pirates and Steve Canyon comic strips. Along with Hal Foster and Alex Raymond, Caniff's style would have a tremendous influence on the artists who drew American comic books and adventure strips during the mid-20th century. Evidence of his influence can be seen in the work of comic book/strip artists such as Jack Kirby, Frank Robbins, Lee Elias, Bob Kane, Mike Sekowsky, John Romita, Sr., Johnny Craig, William Overgard and Doug Wildey to name just a few. European artists were also influenced by his style, including Belgian artists Jijé, Hubinon and Italian artist Hugo Pratt.

LaParenthese "The art is by Ray Bailey with Milton Caniff doing the Steve Canyon faces, and it was a popular notion. However, according to John Ellis of the Caniff Estate, the art is now attributed to Lee Elias, another of the Caniff School." http://matttauber.blogspot.fr/2012/07/strictly-for-smart-birds.html
