In an effort to further fund our efforts to restore the Steve Canyon TV series, we are offering this well known artwork in an online auction on eBay. This is the original art to the daily STEVE CANYON strip, dated March 14, 1952. This is PURE MILTON CANIFF, no assistants worked on this (except for Frank Engli lettering, which he did for Milton from 1934 until 1975). This is a superb daily strip from late in the story Caniff titled CRISIS ON THE CAMPUS (November 15, 1951-April 6th 1952).
The art is pretty clean, no glue stains or the like, and no "paste-overs". The final image from this artwork is perhaps the quintessential illustration that is associated with Milton Caniff. Size is approximately 22 7/8" X 7 1/4". Summer Olson and the Whissel Sisters are in panels one through three, Little Oley Olsen joins them in panels two and three, and then there is the famous powerfully iconic image of Oley crying on the steps with Milton Caniff's distinctive signature in panel four.
THE RAREST OF THE RARE. This last panel has been printed and reprinted the world over as a representation of Caniff's artistry as a storyteller and the greatest adventure comic strip artist of the 20th Century. This image has spoken to the world and it is now finally being offered for sale. This is it, don't be afraid to bid and miss your chance on this amazing offering...perhaps you'll be the lucky owner!
This is a one of a kind item, a very rare, very early and very nice Milton Caniff STEVE CANYON original ... NOTE - We are in process of winding down with the sale of Milton's originals...so don't miss this great opportunity...we won't be selling many more after this. We are close to the end of what we will be offering.
NOTE - The sale of this artwork directly helps the Milton Caniff Estate with projects we are involved in which we believe will interest many fans of his work, so support a good cause and get a guaranteed GREAT piece of early Steve Canyon art that has NEVER been in the hands of another collector!
I want to mention that I have a LOT of pictures, film clips and information to post in the coming weeks which I am sure will be of interest to those of you that frequent our site, so please be patient and drop by often. And a reminder to everyone that our Special Edition DVD and Commemorative Hats make great stocking stuffers, and purchasing them (or even donating a buck or two) helps to support restoring these shows. I will mention that we just finished transferring episodes 19 through 33 and they look and sound TERRIFIC! This is so exciting, and we can't wait to share these on DVD this coming year, the series 50th anniversary. Stay tuned!
