Stern Wheeler is a comic strip created by the late great Jim Aparo and Ralph Kanna. As can be seen from this handsome Spotlight Comics one-shot cover gathering up his few adventures, Stern was a typically handsome Aparo hero accompanied here by his assistant Wally. Here's some information on the character and here is more on their creation.
Here's a look at the color proof which served as the cover to this 1986 one-off small-press treat which publishes the first of two Stern Wheeler adventures. The second anticipated issue never reached the stands. If you find one of these, snap it up. They are usually quite inexpensive and very much worth the read.
