HEADLINE COMICS "Guns of Jesse James"

Sometimes, the most interesting Western comics tales aren't in Western comics... this story from Headline Comics #27 (1947) by the legendary team of Simon & Kirby proves!
While not totally accurate in how Jesse died, the story does contain a number of true elements including his being shot from the rear by Bob Ford while hanging a picture.
(But he was shot in the head, not the heart, as shown in this tale!)

Be back next Monday, when We Return to Those Thrilling Days of Yesteryear (gee, that sounds familiar)...
