Synopsis

When Draw Lennon Federal Marshal finds Pepita Chihuahua in Willow Bend, Steve Adams objects to his treatment of a woman in his town. Drew proves to be a stagecoach robber called Bowdry, Pepita a criminal who steals from other robbers, and the real Draw a man who has lost his memory. Straight Arrow saves the stage and rounds them all up.

Notes

The newspaper strips have been rearranged with some art deleted. There are 12 panels per page in four tiers of three panels. The story has been censored with an image of Pepita sitting provocatively redrawn to show her standing, and poker cards edited out of another panel.
