    "Al Capp and Milton Caniff." No. 103 in the KSP Postcard Series

    (No. 1 of 18 in the Famous Cartoonist Postcard sub-set).

    Capp (creator of Li'l Abner) was arguably the most famous cartoonist in history. Caniff (creator of Terry & The Pirates and Steve Canyon) was nearly as famous. The jowl to jowl grimmacing pose suggests the two are fierce rivals, but in reality they were lifelong friends, beginning in the early 1930's when each was an unknown in New York City's Associated Press bullpen. Both, ironically, labored on the same obscure strip, Mr. Gilfeather, before becoming syndicated stars. 4" x 6" sepia tone card on heavy card stock.
