Noted TV Western actor Dale Robertson passed away last weekend...
...so, in tribute, we're presenting a story based on his best-known (and longest-running) series, Tales of Wells Fargo...
"Red" Larkin is a sneaky cuss...as you'll discover next week!
Written by Gaylord Dubois, penciled by Gil Kane, and inked by Russ Heath, this cover story from Dell's Four Color #1167 (1961) is an atypical tale of cowboys and, of all things, boats combining Kane's dynamic storytelling and Heath's amazing attention to historical accuracy and slick inking style!
Dale Robertson starred in four Western TV series: Tales of Wells Fargo, Iron Horse, the final year of Death Valley Days, and (as a contemporary Western private eye) in J J Starbuck, as well as ongoing roles on two of the biggest nighttime soaps; Dallas and Dynasty!
Trivia: Dale was one of the few left-handed Western heroes!
