Rick O'Shay: Hipshot's Cat
Recently been reading Rick O'Shay, Hipshot & Me, Stan Lynde's autobiography / best of tome, which as you can see, not only features Stan's typically warm-hearted memoirs, but ten full stories from his magnificent Western strip set in the old frontier town of Conniption.
One of the tales not featured is this one, where supercool gunslinger Hipshot Percussion takes centre stage. Lynde was a master at balancing drama and comedy, as here when a bunch of low down rattlesnakes steal Hipshot's feline friend, Belle Star. Man, are they gonna regret that.
