Stan Lynde (b. 1931) is an American comic artist, painter and novelist. Born in Billings, Montana, he was raised on a ranch. In 1958, Lynde created the comic strip Rick O'Shay, a critical and commercial success. Like most of his work, it was set in the West and mixed humor with strong storytelling. After a dispute with the syndicate, Lynde left the strip in 1977. The strip continued, drawn by Alfredo Alcala. In 1979, Lynde launched another strip, Latigo, starring Cole "Latigo" Cantrell, aka "Two Trails". His father was a mountain man and his mother a Crow Indian. After serving in the Union Army during the Civil War, Latigo returned to the West and became a federal marshal. The daily strip was launched on June 25, 1979, joined by a Sunday strip, best seen in the half page format, on 1 July 1979. It was not a great commercial success and ended in 1983, the daily on May 7, the Sunday on 5 June. In 1984-85, Lynde produced the weekly panel Grass Roots, which was revived in 1998. In the late 1980s, the Swedish financial newspaper Dagens Industri commissioned a comic strip from Lynde. It became "Chief Plenty Bucks", set in the West and starring a capitalistic Native American chief. Lynde drew ten pages, but the project was shelved and never published in Dagens Industri. In 1997, the strip was revived for the Swedish Fantomen magazine (and its Norwegian and Finnish counterparts). The title was changed to Chief Sly Fox and a total of 86 pages (including the original from the 1980s) were published from 1997 to 2000. They have never been published in English. In 2002, Lynde returned with another exclusive comic for Fantomen; Bad Bob about a hopeless wild West criminal. This strip is still running (as of 2005).
