Wander over to Diversions of the Groovy Kind...


...where the Groovy Agent has posted the debut installment of Wander, the Western/science fiction/comedy that Jim Aparo drew for Charlton's Cheyenne Kid comic book back in the late 60's. If you've never seen this one, trust me, don't miss it! Jim was a really good artist for westerns! He didn't do many western comics besides the first several installments of this one: a few other jobs for other Charlton comics, and an Outlaw episode in All-Star Western at DC (reprinted in Showcase Presents Jonah Hex Volume 1).

I don't know who has the rights to Wander now. It is probably one of the properties that Roger Broughton purchased when Charlton closed shop. Too bad that in today's Golden Age of Comic Book Reprints nifty Charlton properties like this aren't being packaged.
