Comment

A really beautiful daily by Caniff from what I believe is his peak period and also from my favorite comic strip story line of all time. Here the Dragon Lady is helping Terry learn to dance so he can impress April Kane at the ball. Terry had recently saved the wounded Dragon Lady from some thugs and nursed her back to health and she repays him with lessons in dancing and women. The Dragonlady also has other plans but those don't come to light until later in the story. Sigh... this is a piece that makes me very happy to own.

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.
