Westerns Just Got Better...
Bat Lash Returns to Comics

1968 was the year DC Comics introduced Bat Lash to the world, and while the character's series ran for less than a year, it's non-traditional approach to the classic western genre has earned those seven issue a spot in the hearts of fans and comic creators alike.

Written by the Mad Magazine and Groo creator Sergio Aragones and drawn by master illustrator Nick Cardy, the series included plenty of the pre-requisite gambling, womanizing, and dead-eye shooting that the western genre fans clamor for, but with a reluctant hero twist... a violence-hating lover of nature and gourmet food just can't help but attract trouble wherever he goes. Charming, exciting, beautiful, and full of moments like this, old copies of Bat Lash are amongst at least one comic store proprietor's most treasured back issues.

So we were thrilled to hear about a new series of Bat Lash comics, illustrated in classic style by the legendary John Severin and written by one of the best western novelists today Peter Brandvold and original series author Sergio Aragones. Thank you, DC!
