It wasn't until I was well over the age of 21 that I started to appreciate "Gunsmoke". It really was the first "adult" western for television. Although we are now scattered all over the world, there was a small group of us who used to screen episodes of this show when we would gather once a year for a convention. Writer and editor Tom Jeier coined the term "Smokies" in referring to ourselves. I still love the show but only have two of the original comics that Gold Key issued in this series. Hope you will enjoy reading this posting.
