Stagecoach Vigilante

"Stagecoach Vigilante" from Western Comics #1 (National, 1948) by Mort Meskin
Vigilante only lasted four issues of Western Comics (was this DC's first of the genre?), but I do find it interesting that a modern-day hero with a western shtick was initially included in a primarily 19th-century classic western anthology that also spawned the Wyoming Kid, Pow-Wow Smith, Matt Savage Trail Boss, and Nighthawk.

  1. For a second there, I thought that the VIGILANTE across the top of the page, was the sound effect of that nice blow to the chops!

    That's one helluva sound effect!
