Hermes Press adds yet another important title to its line-up of classic comic book and comic strip reprints with Roy Rogers: The King of the Cowboys The Collected Dailies and Sundays
Now for the first time an in-depth collection surveying the greatest cowboy strip to grace newspapers: Roy Rogers
. See the adventures of Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, and Trigger in both black-and-white daily strips and four complete full color continuities of the Sundays. Highlighting this collection is the complete work of Silver Age master Alex Toth on the title. Other artists featured in this comprehensive survey of the Roy Rogers
daily and Sunday strips are Mike Arens, Pete Alvardo, and Tom, Chuck, and Bob McKimson.
During the 1950’s, Roy Rogers
was one of the most widely read newspaper comic strips in America and this volume presents a representative sampling covering the entire 12-year run of the title. This book, as with all Hermes Press’ comic book and strip reprints, presents a detailed essay about the strip’s history, written by comics historian Tim Lasuita, accompanied by artwork, movie posters, advertising, and toys. The book also features a forward by Roy Rogers’ son, Roy “Dusty” Rogers. Don't miss it!
