This issue of The History Teacher is decorated with the spectacular tales of Sally Starr, the "two-gun girl sheriff" fearlessly facing mysteries, menaces, and misogyny in the Old West. Against all odds and expectations—and against the wishes of her companion and sidekick Flash Gannon—Sheriff Sal refuses to relent, riding to glory in a series of adventures originally published in 1948-1949.

These comics are in honor of this extraordinary edition of the journal, which takes an unprecedented look at books published by student authors in lieu of the professional authors regularly featured in the Reviews section. Spanning two issues, this student showcase begins with "The Cleveland Trolley Strike of 1899: Learning History by Creating a Graphic Novel," by James A. Gutowski. This issue also features the innovative collection, New, Critical, and Re-Envisioned Approaches to Teaching World History, with an introduction by Michael Lovorn, Patrick Manning, and Molly Annis Warsh.
