The Devil runs rampant in the territory which will one day be known as Missouri. He slaughters families, leaving their corpses branded with his handprint on their chests. It takes hot young frontierswoman, Kit West, in her buckskin miniskirt, to solve the morbid mystery. This story, attributed by the GCD to artist Jill Elgin with possible assist from Gus Schrotter, was originally published in Avon’s Cowpuncher #4 (1948), but my scans are taken from a reprint in Geronimo on the Warpath #2 (1951).
This gory story has knifings, blood, murders, brandings and a burning at the stake! It’s got bad Indians and one bad Spaniard. It’s a lot for nine pages.
