Gene Autry (Rides!) by Till Goodan, Gerald Geraghty, Bert Laws & Bob Stevens - (0570-) 1st Appearance 1940 - Gene Autry was featured in two incarnations in the comic strips, the first by Goodan and Geraghty in the early 1940's and the second by Laws and Stevens in the 1950's.    The strips largely copied Autry's movie matinee formula where Gene would heroically battle cattle-rustlers and the like in continuous storylines lasting a few months at a time.   Of the two versions, the earlier which was illustrated by famed western artist Till Goodan was far higher quality.  Periodically Goodan would include a single large panoramic panel in his weekly offering, making these pages especially impressive.   Both eras of the strip sell extremely well at a premium in any size, however there exists rare full-size versions of the Goodan strip which sell at a very high premium.   The later version had both a daily and sunday strip which are very hard to keep in stock.
