I know there are many outdoor-related adventure novels that can make great company while relaxing on one's own adventure, but are there any outdoorsy comic books? Perhaps the hero is a hiker with an ability to control the elements or understand animals, helps people and animals in danger, fights evil corporations trying to ruin our natural resources, etc.

I could have brainstormed for weeks to list questions that might be asked on this site, and I wouldn't have come up with that one. – Mr.Wizard Aug 22 '13 at 21:49
Well, there's Mark Trail. Not sure it comes in book form, and he's got no special powers. – Don Branson Aug 22 '13 at 22:51
@DonBranson: It seems that Mark Trail comic books were published in the late 1950s, and not since. – Nate Eldredge Aug 23 '13 at 1:05
I think this question is off-topic here. It has nothing to do with wilderness - one can read comics in the lunch break in the office. Maybe fit to Fantasy.SE or some such. For example compare with this question, which is IMO much more on-topic here, but is closed. – Vorac Aug 23 '13 at 8:23
@Vorac: I understand it may be stretching the topic a little, but the main point is for a comic that is "wilderness" inspired. Sure, books and comics can be read elsewhere - a person can also start a fire using flint & steel outside of the wilderness as well. – saratogahiker Aug 23 '13 at 20:07

I do not know of specific comic books other than Ultralight Backpackin' Tips which has cartoon illustrations. However it is far from a comic book. :-)

WhiteBlaze features some comic strips about hiking/thru-hiking on their website. And others have also made some hiking-related comics such as Keith Roberts.
