WESTERN TALES: DAVY CROCKETT "King Ram!"

Our final Davy Crockett story doesn't feature a "bad guy"...
...but there's still action aplenty and it even has a lesson at the end!
Would this make Davy Crockett one of the first enviromentalists?
This never-reprinted story from Harvey's Western Tales #32 (1955) was penciled and inked by Jack Kirby, a rarity since he usually didn't have time to ink his own work!
The writer is unknown, but could be either Kirby or partner Joe Simon.
We hope you've enjoyed our re-presentation of these long-unseen tales, and promise wel'' be back on a monthly (if not more frequent) schedule starting in September.
Happy Trails to you, until we meet again!
