Then, see Norman Maurer’s rendition of WYATT EARP in “Navajo Uprising”; followed by a DURANGO KID classic as rendered by Fred Guardineer; “The Phantom Badhat”. Then, from Lev Gleason’s Black Diamond Western, see BLACK DIAMOND himself in “The Wrong Killers”, drawn by Myron Fass, and Dick Ayer’s HAUNTED HORSEMAN in “The Man From Scotland Yard”. Plus- inside cover photo stills of Charles Starrett as THE DURANGO KID. Black & white with color covers, 44 pages, standard Best of the West size, saddle-stitch bound. Printed in 2007.
