Plot and script: Mauro Boselli Artwork: José Ortiz Cover: Claudio Villa
Tex and the scout, Laredo, capture the evil traffickers that sell arms to Chunz’ rebel Mescaleros, determined to use them as bait. Meanwhile, the Indian guide, Lobo, and Tiger Jack save Curtis’ ranch from annihilation and discover the rebels’ den, ending up prisoners! Tex and Laredo manage to save only the Navajo pard from death by torture and run to Fort Apache to sound the alarm, not knowing that the Native Americans have kidnapped Liz! The two are arrested, however, by the perfidious Lieutenant Parkman, who is about to torture some harmless Coyoteros to obtain information.
