Terry For Veterans Day


For Veterans Day, here is perhaps the most famous of the late, great Milton Caniff's TERRY & THE PIRATES strips in which Flip Corkin offers a pep talk to Terry. This is reproduced from AMERICAN COMIC CLASSICS, a special book put out by the US Postal Service for 1995's 100th anniversery of the comic strip.
One would have to be a fool to like war but wars happen. And one should be respected for one's efforts at winning the wars. A big thank you from Booksteve to all of our guys in the military--past and present! You ARE appreciated!

LOVE this page. Dialog heavy, all
talking heads (like alot of today's
"action" comics) but OH what a
difference. It's worth pulling out every now and then (or post it online; thanks, Steve!) just to see
how cartoon storytelling SHOULD be
done.
Milton Caniff's TERRY is the epitome of SUBLIME!
