Synopsis for "The Mystery Of Ghost Town!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Apache Kid #14.

Aloysius Kare rides into a ghost town where he finds its lone resident, Tumbleweed Hawkins, firing his guns off ranting about ghosts that are after him. Spotting Kare, Tumbleweed fires at the roving cowboy thinking that he is a ghost as well. Deciding to investigate further, Kare rides off and changes into his alter-ego the Apache Kid and uses his Native American tracking skills to stealthily sneak back into the town undetected. Searching around the town, the Apache Kid happens upon three outlaws who are seeking a map that leads to the location where Tumbleweed struck oil years earlier, using the old man's superstitions as a distraction to search. They have only the Last Chance saloon to search, but so far Tumbleweed has protected it heavily. The leader of the outlaws plots a three pronged attack to try and get inside the saloon and recover the map, unaware that the Apache Kid has been listening in on their entire plan.

The Apache Kid easily dispatched two of the outlaws unnoticed and fights it out with the third when suddenly Tumbleweed spots him. Thinking that the Apache Kid is a ghost, Hawkins is about to shoot him when suddenly the Kid's horse Nightwind comes up from behind and throws Tumbleweed on his back and begins bucking. It is not until Tumbleweed acknowledges that the Apache Kid is not a ghost does the warrior command his horse to stop. The Kid then ties up the three outlaws and takes them back into town for justice with Tumbleweed thanking the Kid for his assistance.

Synopsis for "Matt Slade, Gunfighter"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Matt Slade, Gunfighter #1.

Matt Slade is walking through the streets ever on guard when suddenly he is confronted by a young man who challenges him to a draw, hoping to make a name for himself. Matt Slade proves to be the faster gun, and the young man, Cass, believes that he can draw faster and vows to out draw Slade in the future. Not far away, Matt overhears Cass arguing with his sister Mary over her new boyfriend Ben Turnbull who loves Mary, but believes that she will get hurt if they were to get married. After Cass and Mary leave, Matt checks a wanted poster and finds that Ben matches one that he is carrying.

Matt confronts the young man about his connection with Curly Bill and his gang and learns that he was tricked into getting involved in the Burrville bank robbery that made him an outlaw and since then he hung up his guns and vowed to go straight. However, they are soon interrupted by Curly Bill and his men who are determined to drag Ben back into the fold or collect the reward on his head. However, Matt proves to be a faster draw and easily shoots the guns outs of their hands.

The shots bring Cass and Mary running back and Cass once more tries to challenge Matt Slade, but Matt proves a faster draw and shoots the holsters off the boy's gun belt. With the crisis over, Matt takes Curly Bill and his gang into custody, telling Ben that he is free to go since he has gone straight and deserves a second chance and a chance to be happy with Mary.
