Comic Gallery: WYATT EARP 1, 2 & 3 (1955-56)

Dell and/or Western had the licenses to publish comics based on the Wyatt Earp TV show, and also Disney's Davy Crockett show. But Atlas and Charlton published Wyatt Earp comics, and DC featured Davy Crockett in "Frontier Fighters." I guess the names of real-life historical figures were in public domain, although only Dell (and later Gold Key) could use photo covers of Hugh O' Brian and Fess Parker. But it appears Atlas began drawing their character to resemble Hugh O' Brian sometime around issue #14-15. BTW, Marvel reprinted some of the Atlas issues in 1972.

The Charleton issues I've seen did a great job of drawing Hugh O'Brian.
