From the late, lamented DIAL B FOR BLOG as written by "Robby Reed": Shown right is a montage by Gray Morrow which originally appeared on the cover of the 1970 book Days of Thrills and Adventureby Alan G. Barbour. The montage shows Linda Stirling as "Tiger Woman" (1944). It also depicts various scenes that take place during the course of this 12-chapter, Republic Pictures serial, as well as showing scenes from her many other serials.

In the early 1970's, after a series of reprints of the character proved surprisingly popular, DC Comics attempted a revival of the 1940's western hero, the Vigilante--specifically his modernized, "urban cowboy" version that replaced his horse with a motorcycle. Gray was called on to do the art for the initial stories. The series would run as back-ups in various titles over the years. Today, over at DIVERSIONS OF THE GROOVY KIND, we find a recap of Vig's origin from a 1977 WORLD'S FINEST, as illustrated by Gray and written by Bill Kunkel.
