Here is one of my favourite tv westerns that I used to watch in the 60s - Lawman #5 - Aug 1960 from Dell. An excellent show, Lawman was morally upright and along with his trusty deputy Johnny, racked up a HUGE body count during the series! I often wondered how there were any bad guys left in the Wild West by the time Lawman was finished.

Now for everybody's favourite frogman, Mike Nelson in Sea Hunt #8 - Mar 1961 from Dell. I used to love this show when I was a young 'un and starred the late, great Lloyd Bridges.

Next up is F-Troop #4 - Apr 1967 from Dell. As everybody remembers Larry Storch, who played Corporal Agarn, would make an appearance on Get Smart as The Groovy Guru. You remember, right? Right? :D

Next up is Bat Masterson #3 - May 1960 from Dell. Another great tv cover from Dell, a great show and a very cool guy was Bat - who else but Gene Barry carried a gun AND a cane in the Wild West?
