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.
