Zane Grey's King of the Royal Mounted   (1952)
Search for 'Zane Grey's King of the Royal Mounted' on eBay

Publisher: Dell

Publication Date: Jun/Aug 1952 - Jun/Aug 1956

Country: United States

Language: English

Title Continuity:
Zane Grey's King of the Royal Mounted (1952) #8 continues from Four Color Comics (1942) #384
Zane Grey's King of the Royal Mounted (1952) #21 continues to King of the Royal Mounted (1956) #22

Based upon the multimedia franchise of the same name. Zane Grey's actual involvement in the franchise is somewhat debatable. Certainly, Zane Grey wasn't hanging around Dell's offices, giving writer Gaylord Du Bois a few tips.

In fact, there's little to tie Zane Grey to even the early, syndicated newspaper days. The character seems to have actually been created by Stephen Slesinger, who merely licensed the Grey name. However, Grey's son was known to have been a more active collaborator.

By the time of this solo title, the connection to Grey or even Slesinger was tenuous at best. It was, by now, an original work of writer Gaylord Du Bois and various artists who had never worked on the newspaper strip. In fact, the solo title is the only part of the franchise, other than the film, which eventually dropped the Zane Grey name entirely. At issue #21, it became, simply, King of the Royal Mounted. .

See the article on Dave King for more information about the history of the franchise.
