Terry and the Pirates, by George Wunder (1950)
'Terry and the Pirates', 1950.

At a very young age, George Wunder knew that he wanted to become a professional comic artist. He enrolled in an art course with the International Correspondence School. In 1936, his dream came true: he got a job at the Associated Press as a staff artist. He worked together with artists Noel Sickles and Tom Paprocki. In 1946, when the Tribune-News syndicate was looking for a replacement for Milton Caniff on the 'Terry and the Pirates' comic, Wunder was chosen. He devoted himself to this comic until his retirement in 1973. 

On 6 October 1965, Wunder was one of six cartoonists (the others being Milton Caniff, Roy Crane, Bill Mauldin, Don Sherwood and Mort Walker) to be invited by U.S President Lyndon B. Johnson to the White House as "creators of military comics."

George Wunder died in 1987.
