Casey Ruggles is a Western comic strip written and drawn by Warren Tufts that ran from 1949 to 1954.

The Sunday strip was launched May 22, 1949, and the daily strip on September 19, 1949. Until 1950, the Sunday strip and the daily strip both told the same story.

Tufts’ ghost artists and assistants were Al Plastino, Edmond Good, Alex Toth and Ruben Moreira. Tufts did not write or draw the Sunday strip between August 31, 1953, and January 30, 1954. The last Tufts’ daily was April 3, 1954, and his last Sunday was on September 5, 1954.  casey04

The strip continued for a short while with Al Carreño as artist and writer.

Casey Ruggles was an Old West adventurer in California during the Gold Rush. A former sergeant in the U.S. Army, he encountered such historical figures as Kit Carson, William G. Fargo, Millard Fillmore, Jean Lafitte, and Henry Wells. This story is not yet made into a movie.

      You are welcome.
      That would be great indeed, i don’t have the time to check and sort all individual issues. If someone has that time and will upload them i will be happy to replace these with the sorted.
