Yankee Clipper

Here’s another story by the great Gene Colan, although this particular example is taken from very early in the artist’s storied career.

Even though the art is crude compared to his later efforts, Colan still displays a nice feel for mood and action. It is also interesting to note the strong influence of Milton Caniff. I wish more artists these days took their cues from the creator of Terry And The Pirates and Steve Canyon.

From Wings Comics #53, Fiction House (January, 1945), here’s “Clipper Kirk.”
