Comic creator: Len Lawson
Leonard Keith Lawson, also known as Len or Lennie Lawson, wrote and drew the bestselling Australian western comic 'The Lone Avenger' (first published in Action Comic, 1946) and another cowboy comic, 'The Hooded Rider'. Also for Action Comic, he made 'Diana, Queen of the Apes'. He died in prison in 2003, after serving a life-sentence for rape and murder.
The Len Lawson obituary reads:
Alliterative name, unbelievable apocalyptic life- artist on the most popular comic of the day for a while... All the story needs is the corresponding superhero, presumably a hero cop...
