Western Movie Hero 3
John Ford’s classic, ” Rio Grande”, starring John Wayne is spotlighted with text and photos including behind-the-scenes planning this issue. The Duke is also featured in “The Panther Man!” comic strip feature by Al Williamson, from Wayne’s 1950’s comic book series. Western thrills continue with Monte Hale who faces the deadly Minstrel Man who has composed a “Song of Death” for the tall Texan. The smoking six-shooter in his hand made the finger of guilt point right at Rocky Lane after a ride on “The Stagecoach of Doom!” by Ralph Carlson. Big John Wayne returns to face “Ghost Guns” in a second adventure drawn by Myron Fass. Rocky Lane, Monte Hale and John Wayne- what a terrific lineup of Western comics and film history and excitement in this third big issue!!
