George Wunder(ful) Ink Skills.

I just recently acquired two daily strips of George Wunder's "Terry and the Pirates" from 1950. In 1946, when Milton Caniff left "Terry and the Pirates" George Wunder was chosen to replace him.

I was never fascinated with his comics as much as I was fascinated with his inking skills. Best said by writer-artist Bill Pearson "He drew ugly people, even young women, which was certainly a curious trait, but he was one of the very best inkers in the business. His technique was flawless." With his clean and precise inking style, Wunder filled his panels with numerous foreground and background details.
