TWO GUN PERCY "Cow-Sheep War"

Besides fighting Indians, cowboys constantly battled each other... they divided into factions of cattlemen and sheepmen who fought over territory for their respective hungry herds!
While the cow-sheep feud is played for laughs here, it was, in fact, one of the bloodiest conflicts of the history of the Old West.
Two Gun Percy was an ongoing feature in DC's All Funny Comics for its' entire 23-issue run, after which it made two more appearances in the back of World's Finest Comics before disappearing into limbo, never to be reprinted.
This tale from  #11(1946) was written by the strip's co-creator Joe Samachson and illustrated by Jimmy Thompson, who also did another Western humor strip, Rodeo Rick, in Western Comics.
