Durango Kid Comic Books

     
    


Charles Starrett had been making Westerns for Columbia Pictures since 1935 and was consistently listed among Billboard's top ten Western stars. In 1940, he was starred in what was assumed to be just another Columbia Western, a film entitled "THE DURANGO KID."

But, THE DURANGO KID turned out to be one of the most popular Western heroes of the silver screen.

By 1952, Starrett had made 65 Films as the Durango Kid.

 

In 1949, MAGAZINE ENTERPRISES approached Columbia Pictures about publishing a DURANGO KID comic book. A year earlier, the publisher had had success with a similar endeavor with Western star TIM HOLT. The company, headed by publisher VINCENT SULLIVAN, and editor RAYMOND KRANK, was to become, quality wise, one of the finest in the field. 
The covers of the first 5 issues of 
THE DURANGO KID comic featured "colorized" photos of Starrett as the masked rider. Inside covers also featured photos of scenes from the DURANGO KID series. Later covers were artwork with small insert photos of Charles Starrett. Today, these comics are collector's items.
