In an effort to further fund our efforts to restore the Steve Canyon TV series, we are offering this original artwork in an online auction on eBay. This is the original art to the Sunday STEVE CANYON strip, dated April 16, 1961. NOTE that this is the very first Steve Canyon SUnday page original we have ever offered online. This is MILTON CANIFF finished art (pencil and ink), over layouts by Dick Rockwell (Norman Rockwell's nephew) who drew layouts from 1953 on (and lettering by Frank Engli, which he did for Milton from 1934 until 1975). This is a superb sunday strip from early in the story Caniff titled THE RETURN OF THE CRAG HAG (Mar 31st to July 1st, 1961). The art is quite clean for a sunday page and in fact looks MUCH brighter, nicer, sharper AND "more even" in person than it does in this image (It's very hard to scan art of this size, this is merely a snapshot). Size is approximately 25 1/8" X 18 3/4". Dogie Hogan and princess Snowflower are in panels 1-3, Steve is in panels 4-9, MADAME LYNX is in panel 9 (her introduction within this story), and Milton Caniff's distinctive signature in panel one along with the distinctive Canyon logo (designed by Noel Sickles).
