Dagar Desert Hawk published eight bi-monthly issues from Fox Feature Syndicate (starting with #14 and ending with #23.*) And yes someone at Fox couldn’t count and skipped two issues.
Cover art on all these issues is by Edmond Good, who eventually launched a long career for Tupperware as Artistic Director. Inside #19 (August 1948) Dagar saves Leandra the reporter after her group of pyramid tomb raiders are ambushed by Slim Ben’s clan of desert dwellers. After being saved Leandra states “You have a beautiful horse Dagar.” To which Dagar calmly replies “We’ll talk about beauty later.” Smooth move Dagar!
