Dare, Dickie. Dickie Dare was created by Milton Caniff (Terry Lee) and appeared in the comic strip “Dickie Dare” (1933-1957).

Dickie Dare begins as a suburban 12-year-old dreaming himself into adventures with characters from Robin Hood to Robinson Crusoe to Aladdin to King Arthur. Eventually his parents introduce him to a swashbuckling sailor named Dan Flynn, who takes Dare on a naval tour of the Mediterranean. Adventures follow, in which Flynn, Dare, and a pretty woman named Kim Sheridan become entangled with everything from German submarines to Arab slavers to French Foreign Legionnaires and explore much of Africa and the South Pacific.
