“In the first few years of Terry and the Pirates, Milton Caniff invented the visual and textual language that defines the very vocabulary of all adventure and character-based comic art…. It is the greatest adventure comic strip ever done—a genuine masterpiece of its art form.” — Howard V. Chaykin
Terry and the Pirates: The Master Collection, Vol. 3
Written and illustrated by Milton Caniff
The saga continues in Terry and the Pirates Volume 3, reproduced from Milton Caniff’s personal set of color syndicate tabloid proofs!
The Dragon Lady gets a bang out of her time with Papa Pyzon, but Terry, Pat, and Connie escape, only to have their first meeting with the lowest of the low, Tony Sandhurst—and is Pat in for a surprise when he meets Mrs. Sandhurst! Despite saving Sandhurst’s miserable life on multiple occasions, Tony connives to bring charges against Pat. Friends and a former lover help acquit him, even as Connie finds a new ally, the gentle giant, Big Stoop. Burma and Captain Judas both make return appearances, and the year ends with Terry, Burma, and Connie assisting ragtag Chinese peasants, unaware a new menace grows near.
