Bat Masterson

    (Dell, 1960-1961)
™ and © Dell Publishing Co.

Masterson was a real person (1853-1921), but this series was based on the Gene Barry TV series (1959-61) and featured photo covers of Barry. The real Masterson served as a Dodge City sheriff, and his appearance was set off by a derby and cane—which Barry’s costuming echoed. The comic book’s run did not continue long beyond the airing of the TV show.
