Tomahawk #131

Tomahawk #131  (On Sale: September 1, 1970) has a Hawk, Son of Tomahawk cover by Joe Kubert.

So, big changes this issue. Murray Boltinoff is out and Joe Kubert is in as editor, Tomahawk is out and Hawk, Son of Tomahawk is in. This is another book I have but cannot put my hands on right now. 

Needless to say this is the introduction of a new character for DC and it happens in "Hang Him High"14-page tale by Robert Kanigher and Frank Thorne.

So, though the character is different, the creative team is not, but that is OK. Frank Thorne's work was always a joy to behold. 

Next is "The Moccasins That Won a War," a six-page reprint from All Star Western #84. This one features the character Strong Bow and is by France Herron and Jerry Grandenetti

We end with "Botalye -- Immortal Indian Warrior," yet another reprint, this one from Jimmy Wakely #7. Now somehow I don't think people minded this reprint all that much as it features the writing of Gardner Fox! OK, what I meant to say is it features the artwork of Frank Frazetta. 

Edited by Joe Kubert.
