DEATH VALLEY "Deadly Double Cross"

Here's a never-reprinted tale of six-gun justice deferred... the talented team of then-up and comers, Ross Andru and Mike Esposito!
Anthologies without ongoing characters were a popular format for Western comics, allowing for life-or-death situations that sometimes actually resulted in a tale's feature characters ending up on Boot Hill!
The first issue of Comic Media's Death Valley (1953) was a showpiece for Andru and Esposito to demonstrate their storytelling prowess in all four stories.
While there's no author listed on any of the indexes for this issue, it's not unreasonable to believe Ross and Mike also wrote these four tales!
Besides the one we're running today, we presented the other stories HERE, HERE and HERE.
