Lionheart, Chapter 1, Page 1

This page attempts to pay homage to Milt Canniff's Steve Canyon--which can be counted amongst the greatest of all newspaper strips (along with Prince Valiant, Terry & The Pirates, Capt Easy, and Buz Sawyer, among many others).

I'm not trying to say that mine and John's work is to be counted among the greats mentioned above—I'm saying that we remember them.

(Unlike a now famous writer/artist I knew long ago who received the prestigious Russ Manning Award for Excellence in Art…who didn't even know who Russ Manning was until I showed her an issue of Magnus, Robot Fighter. Kids these days, huh?)
