The Revenger #2: Death and the Saloon Girl - Frank Leslie (Peter Brandvold)
I have to get caught up on this top-notch Western series from Frank Leslie, a.k.a. Mean Pete Brandvold. Mike Sartain, the Revenger, roams the West righting wrongs and getting vengeance for people who aren't able to settle the scores themselves. The plot twists come fast and furious in this one, as Sartain is lured into an apparent death trap, only to wind up helping the daughter of a sheriff find out what happened to her father and the missing gold shipment he was supposed to deliver. Bounty hunters, shadowy bushwhackers, and several beautiful women complicate things as Brandvold keeps the action and the twists racing along all the way to the end. This is fine stuff, highly recommended, and luckily Pete is writing them on a regular basis so I won't run out of them to read any time soon.
