THE SKY-WRITER, PASCO, WASHINGTON, WEDNESDAY, July 6, 1943

 

Lace, drawn by Milton Caniff for the Pasco NAS Sailors

Someone on The Sky-Writer staff (and it wouldn't surprise me if it had been Jack Gordon) contacted Milton Caniff, who was the original artist for "Terry and the Pirates" comic strip and creator of "Male Call," a military-only strip drawn throughout  the war. Caniff created this stunning drawing of "Lace" (the main character in Male Call) for the Pasco NAS. It's dated June, 1943, and was published in The Sky-Writer issue that just followed Jack's 22nd birthday. What a present.
