Best known as the original Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers, Larry "Buster" Crabbe...
...also did Westerns. In fact, he did more Westerns than any other movie/tv genre!
Among the real-life Westerners he portrayed were Billy the Kid (in 13 films*), and Wyatt Earp.
Like numerous other Western movie and tv stars, Buster had his own comic book, where he fought owlhoots and desperadoes as...Buster Crabbe!
From Buster Crabbe Comics #5, penciled by longtime Batman artist Sheldon Moldoff.

Next: Another masked Western hero returns...

*The Billy the Kid series was retitled "Billy Carson", and continued for 23 more flicks, all starring Crabbe!
