In the 1930s the heroes of American comic strips underwent a significant transformation. Beginning as clowns or as personifications of the values of social elites, comic strip heroes were after 1929 increasingly alienated from their society, and indeed, in revolt against it. This paper argues that this reflects a larger shift in attitudes among young males whose faith in their leadership caste was largely shattered by war and depression, and who thus transferred their allegiance from corporatist heroes to individualist ones. In particular, though not exclusively, the paper will look at this transformation in Milton Caniff’s classic comic, Terry & The Pirates.
