The Boys from Derby: "Valley of Death" by Paul Kirchner

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Paul Kirchner, best known for his work in Heavy Metal, High Times, and Sports Illustrated for Kids was, indeed, once a Boy from Derby. One of his very best for Charlton was originally published in Scary Tales #2 (July 1975). To moi, "Valley of Death" is like a four-color episode of The Twilight Zone. Such a cool tale (a cowboy has a literal showdown with Death), and what an ending! Are you ready to slap leather with the Grim Reaper?
