Cover ink credit from Nick Caputo (April 5, 2004). Cover ink credit originally given to: Larry Lieber.
The plot is very similar to The Magnificent Seven film released in 1960.
This story was likely intended for Kid Colt, Outlaw # 140, but the title went on hiatus two months earlier and did not resume publication until late 1969, with mostly reprint material.
Letters of comment from Neal Lam; Mike Burns; Wild Bill Johnson; and David Crawford.
