A Portland Rogues Gallery

Monte Wolverton

A bunch of us Oregonians get together for lunch every month or two at Szechuan Kitchen to discuss books, films, comics, comix, assorted collectibles and world domination. Last month, we had a small but disguished group, and Mr. Bob Stuart brought his big honkin' camera. Who knew Bob was so artistic? If he finds himself some better subject matter, the guy could be a star!

The Real Life story of GEORGE ARMSTRONG CUSTER (1942)

Today we pay homage to "America's Most Colorful Cavalry Leader," also known as Yellow Hair, Fanny, Autie, Iron Butt and Son of the Morning Star. This tale, from the May 1942 issue of Real Life Comics (scanned for by "Yoc") is dedicated to Cap'n Bob Napier, illustrious grandson of one of GAC's by-blows. Who drew it? I don't know. Cautionary note: Anyone perusing this post from Stayton, OR is advised to close his eyes.
