Captain Easy (Soldier of Fortune)  by Roy Crane & Leslie Turner  (0270-) 1st Sunday July 30, 1933 - The Captain Easy character was actually a spin-off/coup of the earlier Roy Crane offering Wash Tubbs. Captain Easy was introduced in 1929 in Wash Tubbs, took over the title of the Sunday page on July 30, 1933.   Captain Easy was one the most enjoyable adventure strips ever produced. Written and drawn ably by Roy Crane through 1943, the strip took Captain Easy all over the world in search of adventure and romance. The strip took a patriotic tone with the outbreak of World War II.  Leslie Turner took over the strip in the 40’s and stayed with it until the early 60’s weaving a similar web as Crane did. Both Crane and Turner gave us very clean artwork, but Crane was a step ahead with his wonderful panoramic backdrops.   There is a wide disparity in the market for Captain Easy comics.  Sunday Color Fulls which came out in the 30’s through to the 40’s in some papers are white hot and are very hard to keep in stock, even at High premium prices.  Smaller tab or Half-sized versions sell well in runs through to the end of the Turner days.  Dailies go fairly quickly also.
