Lance by Warren Tufts (0795-) - 1st Appearance June 5, 1955 - Lance left United Features Syndicate and his work on Casey Ruggles in 1954.  His attempt to keep the lion share of the revenue from his next creation came in the forn of the excellent western strip Lance.   Lance St. Lorne was a millitary officer stationed in the mid-west during the time of the early Sioux uprising.  The strip was highly realistic with storylines that showed the corruption of both sides.  The strip was introduced as a Sunday and is one of the last strips to be printed briefly full-size.  Dailies were produced for a short time, midway through the run of the strip    The market for Lance quite strong.   Sunday fulls are high premium, however even the later size variations command a modest premium.
