Trump Reading Room aka the OutHouse HILLBILLY COMICS "Gumbo Galahad and Davee Crockhead"

...with this never-reprinted story from Charlton's Hillbilly Comics #1 (1955)!
Written and illustrated by Charlton mainstay Art Gates, this story (and the other strips in Hillbilly Comics) were clearly-based on Al Capp's then-immensely popular Li'l Abner newspaper strip which had been running as a musical on Broadway and was in preparation as a feature film!
In addition, it references the Walt Disney Davy Crockett multi-media juggernaut that also dominated kids' attention during this period!
