Rin-Tin-Tin (I). “Rin-Tin-Tin” was the name of a series of German Shepherd actors who were film stars in the 1920s and 1930s. In Spain, he appeared in the Celebrity Pulp comic book Rin-Tin-Tin (1928-1936). He was created by the Spanish creator José Canellas Casals (Amiel, Armando, Jaime Bazán, Black (III), Carlos and Marcos Bon, Bronkos, César, Thalma Klan, JuditMario, Nick, Red Circle, Sam, Sankro, Spaceman (II), Titán (II), Toby, Capitán Velez, Mack Wan, Fernando Zabal, Zimbra, Khun Zivan) and Francisco Darnis (Carlos and Marcos Bon, Mario, Nick, Samuel, Spanish Explorers, Tom (I)).

Rin-Tin-Tin (I) is as heroic as the film version but is even more intelligent, has a varying set of human companions, and is thrown into more fantastic adventures, involving shipwrecks, technologically-advanced subterranean Lost Races, ghostly murderers, invasions of Yellow Peril Chinese armed with SCIENCE! weapons which wipe out entire cities, and so on. Rin-Tin-Tin (I) appears in stories with titles like “The Ghost of Red Lake,” “The Grasping Hand,” and “The Green Star.”
