Now here's something you don't see everyday...
...I mean besides a a six-gun-shooting cowboy astride a tiger!
It's a cover featuring a character who isn't even in the comic book!
When he premiered in the next issue, it was under a different cover...
Here's his debut appearance (and origin) from ACG's Hooded Horseman #26 (1952) in a decidedly-different take on cowboys and Indians. (ahem)
It seems the skill-set for being a cowboy is transferable to almost any environment!
Written by Richard Hughes and illustrated by Leonard Starr, best known for his own newspaper comic strip Mary Perkins, On Stage, becoming the writer/artist of Little Orphan Annie after it was revived due to the success of the Broadway musical adaptation, and co-creating the animated series ThunderCats.
