Milton Caniff

Looking to buy Milton Caniff comic art?

Milton Caniff was one of the grandmasters of American comics, and one of the pioneers in character-driven comic stories. His creations 'Terry and the Pirates' (1934-1946) and 'Steve Canyon' (1947-1988) are both landmarks in newspaper comics. Although he wrote and drew the latter for nearly 40 years, it is Terry who had the biggest impact on comics history. Caniff was the first to craft truly realistic and multi-layered comic characters, whose personalities evolved as the years progressed. His comics are renowned for their exciting, action-packed stories which often take place in exotic locations. But he never lost sight of the human element, which helped his series gather a massive fanbase. With his effective use of black-and-white ink effects and well-balanced emotions he most rightly earned the nickname "Rembrandt of the Comic Strip". Together with his contemporaries Alex Raymond and Harold Foster, Caniff can be considered one of the most influential artists in the field of realistically-drawn comics.…Comiclopedia
