Previously: Ace and his partner Strongarm are on their way to rescue a town from the deadly Faro Kid. As they travel, Ace tells his companions about a dream he had, in which his hat told him how the Faro Kid may be a key to Ace's past. To read from the beginning, click here.

I'm really having a hard time "holdin' my horses", gentle reader. I really want to post the next few pages. The last page of the dream surprised me.

Meanwhile, if you notice I've added a section over to the right labeled "Extras". These extras are going to be some other Western comics I've written. The first one is called "The Ballad of the Freak", a 24-Hour Comic I wrote and drew a few years ago. It's what I call a "Jimmy Stewart Western" (as opposed to a "John Wayne Western" or a "Clint Eastwood Western"). It's a project I am very proud of, and one of the few stories I've written that I enjoy going back to over and over again. Like many writers, when I end a story it can be hard to want to go back and read it (unless I have to, for continuity purposes). This 24-Hour Comic is not like that. I still enjoy going back and reading it. I think part of it comes from the enjoyment of reliving the project process.
