Queen of the West Dale Evans, no. 11



Queen of the West Dale Evans, no. 11


Dale Evans was the co-star (and real-life wife) of Roy Rogers on The Roy Rogers Show, and as Raymond E. White has claimed, Evans and Rogers presented "an American West that was optimistic, lighthearted, and musical" (3). This was Evans's second comic book series, preceded by DC Comics' Dale Evans Comics, which ran for twenty-four issues from 1948 to 1952. Along with Evans' and Rogers' series, the show's iconic horse Trigger had its own comic book series, as well. On the cover of this issue, Evans is reading to another member of The Roy Rogers Show, Bullet the Wonder Dog. (Reference: Raymond E. White, King of the Cowboys, Queen of the West: Roy Rogers and Dale Evans. Madison: U of Wisconsin Press, 2005.)
