Western Title Spotlight

715546-crackajack_9

Crackajack Funnies began in 1938 and featured Tom Mix for the first seventeen issues, as well as his sidekick Wash Tubbs. It added Red Ryder as seen here on the cover of #9. Cowboy star Buck Jones also made an appearance in several issues. All of the titles covers were great looking and very colorful, even when it switched to mainly telling the tales of The Owl, a sort of Batman knock-off. It ended in the middle of WWII with issue #35.
