Storm Entertainment released a new comic book biography on the legendary John Wayne. Tribute: John Wayne was released in both print and digital.
Few actors achieve the level of fame afforded silver screen icon John Wayne. Born Marion Mitchell Morrison, his distinct vocal cadence, intimidating physical presence, and signature look made him a box office draw for 30 years. Although he's been gone for 36 years, his legacy remains.
