This is a trade sized comic with illustrated covers and a stapled spine. The comic is in Good+ to Near Very Good- condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The spine joints, edges and corners of the book covers have some generalized rubbing, creasing and wear, along with a couple of small chips missing. The text pages are generally clean, but there is noticeable toning to the edges. "Rogers was an idol for many children through his films and television shows. Most of his postwar films were in Trucolor during an era when almost all other B westerns were black and white. Some of his movies would segue into animal adventures, in which Rogers's horse, Trigger, would go off on his own for a while with the camera following him. With money from Rogers's films and from his public appearances going to Republic Pictures, Rogers brought a clause into a 1940 contract with the studio where he would have the right to his likeness, voice, and name for merchandising. There were Roy Rogers action figures, cowboy adventure novels, and playsets, as well as a comic strip, a long-lived Dell Comics comic book series (Roy Rogers Comics) written by Gaylord Du Bois, and a variety of marketing successes. Rogers was second only to Walt Disney in the number of items featuring his name."
