Casey Ruggles by Warren Tufts  (0275-) 1st Sunday May 22, 1949 - Casey Ruggles was the hard-hitting story of a army sergeant dealing with the realities of the California Gold Rush.  Casey would have to deal with adventure, romance, and outlaws while walking through history.  Similar to Dick Tracy,  no punches were pulled when it came to the heinous crimes within the storylines.    That was coupled with extraordinary artwork to make Casey Ruggles a real classic.  Warren Tufts was a perfectionist when it came to his work which translated in long hours  producing both the Dailies and the Sundays.  The grueling schedule forced Tufts into dropping the strip after five fabulous years.    Follow-up cartoonists could only keep is going to another year.     Sales of Casey Ruggles are very good.  Both dailies and sunday sell quite well.
