    Cover by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon. Stories and art by Paul McCarthy, Marvin Stein, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. As the Comics Code goes into effect and horror comics are taken out of the marketplace, this former horror mainstay switches to reprints of the classic Simon and Kirby comic Boy's Ranch. This kid-gang series set in the Old West is often hailed as a creative high-point in the partnership of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. The boys strike out for the Oklahoma territory. Clay is enlisted as part of a team to protect a fortune arriving by train from Kansas City, but he doesn't trust the others. Lessons for readers on how to ride, rope and even talk like cowboys. First issue with the Comics Code seal on the cover. Teeth for the Iron Horse!; How To Ride a Horse, Lesson 6; Remember the Alamo!; Happy Boy Carries the Ball!; Fun at the Zoo; Now You Can Make Your Pair of Western Moccasins; How Cowboys Say It; How To Spin a Rope, Lesson 6; Indian Attack; Six-Gun Justice. Final issue of the series. 32 pages, Full Color. Cover price $0.10.
