Sheriff of Tombstone. Sort of.
Today's story comes from Charlton's Gunfighters #56, October 1979. I did a little research, wondering who had written and drawn this story, since it was completely uncredited. The GCD didn't have any information on this story, except that it featured Luke Spade (the "Sheriff of Tombstone") and was reprinted from Sheriff of Tombstone #16, July 1961.
original cover of Sheriff of Tombstone #16 by Dick Giordano
Even odder, I found out that the cover of Gunfighters # 56 was originally the cover for Sheriff of Tombstone # 1 from November 1958.
Also by Dick Giordano.
Sheriff of Tombstone ran 17 issues and the stories were heavily reprinted in Charlton's 1970's Westerns Gunfighters and Outlaws of the West .
