GUY WILLIAMS ZORRO COMIC BOOKS
Zorro began appearing in comic books back in 1949, well in advance of the Disney version
of the legend. After eight issues had been published as part of the Four-Color Comics
series by Dell, the success of the Disney television series led to a revamping of the comics.
Beginning with Four-Color 882, the stories featured the characters and likenesses from the
series. The artwork was by Alex Toth, a skilled artist who has become famous in the field.
Each of the comics features a photo cover using pictures from the series. In addition, many
had non-Zorro featurettes about life in old California. Only the Zorro stories are listed
After several more issues in the Four-Color series, Dell renamed the series under the Zorro
title, but started the numbering with issue #8 to reflect the earlier issues.
