Winoga (I). Winoga (I) appeared in the German dime novel Winoga, der Letzte Mohikaner #1-90 (1921-1924); the series was reprinted in Czechoslovakia from 1926-1929 and in Italy in 1929 and 1940.

Winoga (I) is a traditional German Noble Savage character, of the kind common and popular in German popular fiction since James Fennimore Cooper’s Leatherstocking novels and Charles Sealsfield’s Tokeah; or the White Rose (1829). Winoga (I) is the last Mohican warrior. During the 1860s and 1870s he wanders the American frontier, fighting for good and helping men of good will, both natives and white, against villains, both natives and white. In Winoga #86 he finds the weapons of James Fenimore Cooper’s Chingachgook.

Winoga appears in stories with titles like “Monsieur Rataplan,” “The City of Ghosts in the Forest of the Manitu,” and “Leatherstocking’s Testament.”
