Synopsis:
Three years after the Civil War, Confederate soldier Ethan Edwards' homecoming at his brother's Texas ranch is ruined by a Comanche raid. His brother and his wife and son are killed and his young nieces are kidnapped by the Comanches. Edwards and Marty, a young man his brother raised, go on a multi-year search to find them.

Indexer Notes

Story continues on the inside back cover in black and white and concludes on the back cover in color. The last panel is Dell's "A Pledge to Parents." This adaptation of the 1956 movie "The Searchers" is fairly faithful to the movie, though an early movie reference to Edwards possessing money from a railway robbery is omitted, as is the classic closing scene. Pencils, inks, and letters credits for this sequence from Alberto Becattini (May 14, 2007).
