Davy Crockett

Davy Crockett #1

1955, Charlton Comics Group.

Indian Attack: It's 1811 and Andrew Jackson has sent for Davy to help him with an Indian problem. In the end 700 Indians are killed and 200 taken prisoner.

The Fight on Gideon's Creek: In this story it's 1800 and Davy is a youth. It's a story that makes no sense at all. Some furs are taken by Indians, Davy trails them, sees one is a young boy who is terribly cold, he tricks the Indians out of their furs, they follow him, there's a fight with guns, and in the end Davy helps the boy and gives him the furs.

This doesn't make any sense. If he saw that the boy was basically freezing, then why not let him keep the furs in the first place? This would have avoided the fight, with various Indians being shot or killed.

Lobo Terrror, a Red Roan story: A story about a herd of horses, wolves, and humans looking for a new home.

Big Bow and Little Arrow in The Paper Picker: Typical stereotype of Indians being rather stupid.

Davy Crockett Casts his Vote: Davy helps overcome a crooked guy running for sheriff.

An Unsung Hero: The Story of Johnny Appleseed: The story of the man who planted numerous apple trees from Indiana through back to Boston.
