|Milton Caniff- Miss Lace pin-up Original Art-undated. Hubba! Hubba!. The men of the 63rd Infantry Division are
zeroing in on their objective--the smokin hot Miss Lace!. Milton Caniff drew this sizzling specialty piece to
commemorate the first anniversary of the boys of "Blood and Fire" at Camp Van Dorn. Mail call, starring Miss
Lace was syndicated to more newspapers than any other comic strip in history, approximately 3,000 all told.
Milton Caniff began the strip on January 24, 1943 and continued his "good girl" feature for the duration of the
war. Since the audience was nearly all-male, her adventures tended to be quite "spicy". Along with George
Baker's Sad Sack and Bill Mauldin's Willie and Joe, Miss Lace numbers among the most fondly recalled of World
War II's military-related cartoon characters. The final Male Call strip appeared on 3 March 1946.
