Burned 'em on the Stove

"Burned 'em on the Stove" from Bat Lash vol.1 #3 (DC, 1968) by Nick Cardy and Dennis O'Neil

Bartholomew "Bat" Alouysius Lash is a lover, a gambler, a con man, but not a fighter, which really sets him apart from all the other western stars. You know, when Sergio Aragones wrote a recent Bat Lash mini-series, I thought it was a little weird. That's because I didn't realize that he actually wrote some of the original stories! (And drew some cartoons at the back too.) My chosen splash is not from one of those issues, of course, but that's because I've always had trouble ignoring Nick Cardy art.
