Unusual Tales - Horse Hunter's Bait



"Unusual Tales", a series presenting Steve Ditko's comics from 1957 to 1959 that are in the public domain.

"Horse Hunter's Bait" is a 5-page story from Charlton's ROCKY LANE'S BLACK JACK #25 [1958], with another short adventure of the fiercely independent horse. 

A cute little story about Black Jack leading some hunters determined to capture him on a long journey to fulfil a mission of his own.  Some really good western art in this one, I think page 3 has some especially nice panels.

Some links to check out:
Buy Ditko's creator-owned work

Download public domain comics, likely including the one this story is from
scans in this series generally adapted to my personal tastes from those copies

  1. I love these Black Jack stories. Anthropomorphisms aside, they are heart-warming and carry a good positive moral.
