We go from a superhero created for WWII to the actor best-known for winning WWII!
(Jet Pilot is a Cold War movie involving Russians. No Koreans or scenes set in Korea.)
Comic books were a different matter...
One of the conceits of this 31-issue series, John Wayne Adventure Comics, was that Wayne was always himself in the stories, no matter where or when they were set!
Stories ran the gamut from Wayne in the French Foreign Legion to putting out oil-rig fires to big-game hunting in Africa to tracking spies in Hong Kong, with at least one Western-themed story every issue.
Oddly enough, though there are numerous comic adaptations of Wayne's Western movies, and even a comic based on The Conqueror (where he portrayed Genghis Khan), there are no comics adapting any of his many war movies!
Until next time...
