Double Dose of “Grit Gregson – Fighter in the Foreign Legion”

DoubleGritHere are two short tales of Grit Gregson from the U.K. comic “Lion”.  Both appeared in 1954–22 May for The Mascot They Didn’t Want (#118) and 12 June for He Arrested His Pal (#121)Of course these are a bit old fashioned and were written for the younger crowd of the day but Grit Gregson stories always contain essential elements of good Foreign Legion tales; the villainous Sergeant, a small cadre of the hero and his diverse buddies, seedy back alleys of the village negre“, and bands of marauding Bedouins that make Hollywood Indians seem authentic.

    Thank-you Jack for a great Camerone Day present. Yes, I agree it was written with kids in mind, but in 1954 I was a kid, and the two stories took me back quite a few years. I used to get the LION comic occasionally.
