King of the Royal Mounted is an American comic book series created in 1935 by Stephen Slesinger, based on popular Western writer Zane Grey’s byline and marketed as Zane Grey’s King of the Royal Mounted. The series’ protagonist is Dave King, a Canadian Mountie who always gets his man and who, over the course of the series, is promoted from Corporal to Sergeant. King has appeared in newspaper strips, comics, Big Little Books, and other ancillary items.
Zane Grey’s son Romer and Slesinger collaborated on many of the stories, and the artwork was produced by Allen Dean, Charles Flanders, and Jim Gary in Slesinger’s New York studio. A movie serial was produced in 1942.
