Unusual Tales - The Silver-Tip Outlaw


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

"The Silver-Tip Outlaw" is a 7-page story from Charlton's ROCKY LANE'S BLACK JACK #27 [1959]. It's a human free story of the legendary horse, and not a great one. Pretty much just Black Jack protecting his herd from a bear. Some pretty drawings, though, one benefit of the lack of humans is that there's no dialogue, so you get some nice unobscured pictures.

But before the story, some links:

Scans in this series generally adapted to my personal tastes from those copies
