Strongbow the Mighty
Steve Holland writes >
"The Robin Alone strip you posted recently is actually a reprint from the British comic Mickey Mouse Weekly, drawn by Bill Lacey in the early to mid 1950s. The Rustlers of Deepwood Ranch storyline ran in Mickey Mouse during the summer of 1954. I'm surprised it turned up in an Australian newspaper. I don't have any of the original strips for comparison, but it would appear to have been rejigged, as the original British strip would have been portrait rather than landscape."
I suspected there may have been others and Strongbow the Mighty looked like a good bet. Steve again >
"Yes, there was definitely a Strongbow in Mickey Mouse Weekly, drawn by Ron Embleton."
