Joe King was an ordinary American cowboy whom fate had contrived to bring to central India shortly after World War II, there though another slip of fate he was named by a dieing maharaja as the ruler of his kingdom, where upon he was embraced as “Cowboy Sahib.”
During his brief career King used his Western skills in the Wild East to defend his land from dacoits (bandits,) wild tigers from the surrounding forests and invading Red Russian agents attempting to take over Cowboy Sahib’s new territory. (after all this was the 50’s)
He was created by Leonard Starr.
