Air Hawk was a great newspaper adventure strip from Australia that ran from 1959 to 1986, and was all about Jim Hawk, a two-fisted charter pilot in the outback who just can't seem to stop getting involved in adventures.
As well as rock solid, exciting stories and brilliant artwork from John Dixon & Hart Amos, Air Hawk has the added bonus of it's setting: With it's vast, beautiful landscapes, Oz is the perfect modern Wild West for an adventurer like Jim to roam around in, getting mixed up with treasure hunters, escaped crims, and the like.
I also like the way everybody, up to and including our hero, looks a bit weatherbeaten and craggy. These are people who've clearly spent a lot of time under the outback sun.
There's also heaps of casual sexism, if that's your bag.
Here's a great story from the Bronze Age period of the strip.
