Davy's Bookshelf: Fighting Davy Crockett
One of many Crockett comics I don't own, but I sure like lookin' at the cover. This was an Avon one-shot from 1955. The value on this one seems to run from $8-100 depending on condition. The autograph is that of Ray Kinstler, one of Avon's premier artists. Around this time he also began painting Avon paperback covers, including many westerns. In the years since he's done the official White House portraits of two presidents, a well-known iconic portrait of John Wayne, and much more.
