Comment: Mr. Corben’s first pure western story without fantasy or science fiction aspect. Furious riding in the beginning. Reminds the other story from Solo (“Belzon’s Treasure”), though it is different. Again underlaying reason for action is much more deeper than what you can see from panels. All the way till tricky end. Excellent work, both visual and verbal.
Scanned from Spanish print. Apparently similar with the original English print.
