Lash LaRue Western 1
What if Humphrey Bogart had picked up a bullwhip, and become a B-Western movie star? Well, you’d’ve gotten a personality onscreen very much like…Lash LaRue!! The King of the Bullwhip is here in all his glory, in a superb collection reprinting some of the very best Golden Age Lash stories from his Fawcett Comics series of the late 1940’s and early ’50’s- several in FULL COLOR!! You’ll see “Lash LaRue and the Frontier Phantom” (in color), “The General’s Last Stand”, “Justice’s Conscience”, and “Background For Murder”. (color) All artwork by Tony Sgroi. , color lobby card repros from “Outlaw Country” and “Son of a Bad Man”; a short text adventure, “Lash LaRue Plays A Dual Role”, and a personal letter FROM LASH HIMSELF!! All that and great slick photo reproductions on the back and inside covers. A four-color celebration of a real cinematic one-of-a-kind. Color photo cover, interiors are color and black and white with graytones. 44 pages, standard comic book format. Printed in 1990.
