Synopsis
Two outlaws hijack a stage full of sheriffs on their way to a convention in Twin Rivers.

Indexer Notes

Elkan can be spotted by his faces with eyes often out of line, one higher than the other. Also the wavy hair in the neck and curls in front, faces in 3/4 backview often have cheeklines much like Ruben Moreira. This story compares well with Elkan's signed story in Unusual Tales #11, curly hair, hands, inking and varied layout.
