    I suspect that ones enjoyment of this issue is largely dependent on how big a fan you are of the Western genre, as John Ostrander isn't breaking the mold, but he's delivering a very readable story that is making very solid use of the elements one finds in the very best Westerns. We have the revenge driven rookie, the well-traveled hero, and the meaner than hell villain. Now it is somewhat unique to have one of the lead protagonist be a woman, though it's not unheard of (Quick and the Dead, Calamity Jane), and the plight of the natives of the era is often ignored, with the Apache being most often cast as the fearful monsters that plagued the innocent settlers. However aside from these unique features, John Ostrander is sticking to a path that's been travel many times before, though Western fan should be highly pleased with the journey, as there's some cooler than heck lines from the Rawhide Kid, and the villain does a nice job of just being outright evil.
