Previously: To read from the beginning, click here. Last issue, Ace confronted the ruthless and deadly Faro Kid. Now, a new threat is making itself known . . .


I went back and forth with The Troubadour's "music". Do I write songs for him? Or do I find songs for him? At one point, I was going to use public doman hymns, make him some sort of religious singing bandit, which could have been cool. Or have him sing renaissance era love songs. If I wrote songs for him, would it be intentionally funny songs? Serious songs? In the end, I went with "earnest" songs. I think he makes these songs up on the spot, to suit the situation. He does compose real songs as well, but I kind of view him as a cowboy version of a freestyle rapper.
