Captain Wings~"From Shanghai to Rangoon"

Art by Lee Elias

from  Wings Comics #61 (September 1945). Elias cover.


  1. Some of those drawings, especially the flyers' faces, look like Milton Caniff did them

  2. I've often noticed that myself. I am going to run this by a Caniff expert

  3. John Ellis, in his introduction to STEVE CANYON:THE COMPLETE SERIES vol one, tells us that Lee Elias, with Ray Bailey, drew Canyon in Harvey's 1951 offerings. I am figuring that the mid 40s work just paralleled Caniff's look because it was so popular. There are worse artists to emulate!!
