Adams, Bullwhip. Bullwhip Adams was created by George C. Henderson (Apache & Wagonwheel, Whizz Fargo, Ranny McArthur, Vinegaroon Sherman, Tomahawk) and appeared in seven stories in Wild West Weekly from 1935 to 1938, beginning with “Bullwhip Adams–Man Hunter” (Wild West Weekly, Jan. 26, 1935).

Bullwhip Adams is a jolly cowboy, a “whooping, rollicking, double-gunned cowboy” who likes to bellow a “night-herd song at the top of his voice” as he drives his “gaily painted red-and-gold stagecoach.” But when bullets fly, Bullwhip throws himself into the fight, demonstrating an almost supernatural skill with his bullwhip.
