European Western Comic Books ~ Apache Junction

After the death of Cochise, the Apaches continue to make trouble. In 1875 the Chiricahua Apache Black Wolf fled together with a group of warriors from the San Carlos reserve. For fear of a new war, Fort Apache immediately sent the courier Roy Clinton to Fort Bowie to warn them. On the way he finds a burnt-out car with the corpse of an unknown man in it. After he has buried him, the attack by two Apaches becomes almost the doom. He is severely wounded and reaches the Bentley Farm. From that moment on, Clinton is involved in an extremely delicate matter ...
