(Two-Gun Kid#64) - Hunk Harper watched as Two-Gun Kid put on an amazing show of marksmanship. Wanting to make a reputation, he counted the bullets fired until both of the Kid's guns were empty. Harper then challenged the Kid to a gunfight, both silently aware that Kid could not shoot back. Harper called him a coward and drew his gun, but the Two-Gun Kid instead quickly threw his empty gun at Harper, disarming him of one gun. The challenger fired his second gun, but the Kid nimbly avoided his aim. The Two-Gun Kid pulled Harper's hat down over his head and despite Harper still shooting, was able to take away the second gun. The Two-Gun Kid pulled Harper's hat off and punched him in the face. Harper tried to fight back but was instead knocked into a horse's drinking trough and soaked.
Comments: Created by Stan Lee (writer) and Dick Ayers (art).
I'm pretty sure Hunk was not his real first name...
