Sunday is usually comic book day on the Archive, but seeing as we're heading towards Wild West eMonday you get an extra fix this week. In our Terry James feature the author listed Louis L'amour's, To Tame a Land as one of her desert island westerns. Well thanks to Keith Chapman AKA Chap O'Keefe and his vast archive we are able to present scans from a 1958 comic book version of the story - here are 3 pages from a 64-page picture-strip adaptation of that novel published in the UK in 1958 by the Amalgamated Press as part of its Thriller Picture Library. The artist was Robert Forrest.
"Barry Ford", who played the words part in producing this early
graphic novel, was Joan Whitford, a prolific contributor of western
stories and scripts to the Fleetway House comics, and a close friend
of managing editor Leonard Matthews.
