Happy 80th, 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," wrote Howard Chaykin. "Terry is what I and many others consider the greatest adventure comic strip ever done." 'Nuff said, Howard!

The Terry and the Pirates Sunday page premiered eighty years ago this week -- on December 9, 1934 (the daily began two months earlier). Here's that very first Sunday page. Over the next week and a half we'll present a December Sunday from each succeeding year of the strip. It's a great capsule of the strip's development. Enjoy!
