This story, shown in the original art scans that are available on the Heritage Auctions site — thank you, Heritage! — is a clever work of suspense. [SPOILER] Yet it is ultimately frustrating for the reader. I recall it caused some readers to write, wanting to know who paid the price to keep a coach full of people ahead of a pack of hungry wolves.[END SPOILER]
I am asking my readers...is this story, credited to Al Feldstein, one of those EC swipes? It seems that I have either read or heard it told, before EC did it.
Jack Davis’s artwork fits the story well, but seems a bit hurried...as hurried as the characters trying to outrun the wolves. All in all, though, I think it is good fun.
