RIFLEMAN "Outlaw's Pony" Part 1

In the 1950s & early '60s, Westerns dominated the tv screens of America...
 ...and a series needed something unique to separate it from the rest of the herd (as it were).
Let's look at the first comic story based on one of the more unusual shows, about a reluctant expert with a rifle who just wanted to own a stretch of land and raise his 'tween son...
We'll see what happens during that week!
The script for this tale from Four Color Comics #1009 (1959) was penned by Eric Freiwald and Robert Schaefer, while the art was provided by Dan Spiegle, one of the primary illustrators for Dell (and later, Gold Key) movie/tv adaptations due to his knack for rendering likenesses of actors.
