In this episode, we learn about the Golden Age Tomahawk from DC Comics. Tomahawk was a revolutionary war era frontiersman. He was created and drawn by Fred Ray and first appeared in the pages of Star Spangled Comics #69 (June, 1947). At first he was a back up feature in Star Spangled Comics, but he later took over the covers of the that title with issue #96 (September, 1949). Tomahawk and his sidekick, Dan Hunter, also appeared in the pages of Tomahawk, with issue #1 bearing a September-October, 1950 cover date. This title ran for 140 issues until May-June, 1972. Tomahawk was a very popular late Golden Age DC character who survived into the Silver and Bronze Ages of comic books.
