    Fawcett's tales of Western heroes from folklore and the movies. Tex Ritter tries to figure out why someone murdered a random cowhand, and if it has anything to do with the mysterious bandit known as the Prairie Kid. Gabby Hayes becomes a baby-sitter, or as he alliteratively puts it, "Balls of Fire! I can handle bucking broncs, bawling beeves, or bodacious badmen! But the US Cavalry had better rescue me right pronto from these bouncing, bushwhacking babies!" Unfairly sentenced to the Ladreno Chain Gang, Monte Hale is torn between his respect for the law and his desire to escape and clear his name. Tex Ritter: The Prairie Kid; Gabby Hayes: Oh, Baby; Monte Hale: Chain Gang Vengeance; The Crime Weavers; Tom Mix: The Man in the Red Boots. 32 pages, Full Color. Cover price $0.10.
