Description

Milton Caniff became known for his storytelling... and his bevy of female characters. In Terry and the Pirates, he gave us Burma and the Dragon Lady. This continued in Steve Cayon with Feeta-Feeta (his first secretary), Summer Olson (his eventual wife), Copper Calhoun, Princess Snowflake, Convoy, Madam Lynx, Cheetah, Miss Mizzou, and here Doe Redwood. Doe is a female pilot that shows up for training with Steve's outfit and he (sexist that he was) resents her ego and doubts her ability.

This is the strip where Doe meets Steve for the first time and you can almost see the icicles on the word balloon in the last panel as Steve "suggests" she leave, or he will have her arrested. This, like many of Steve's encounters with beautiful ladies, is just the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

I will add that I am always amazed at the condition of some of these strips. Caniff was known for donating a vast number to Ohio State University, but he obviously gave a number to friends, colleagues, and acquaintances. So why were these "gifts" not treasured, but often so mistreated? I realize that original comic strips (like comic book pages) were done for production, so Caniff freely used white-out on a lot of them. But if you look at the scan, you can see it is brown, there are tears and dents and there is masking tape around all edges. Whoever he gave this did not see it as the treasure I do.
