Comic - Cheyenne: Gunpowder Pass

Angry indians declare war on the Army and Bronco Layne when the latter try to build a new fort in the wilderness.

Comic - Small Bear

(Neither Cheyenne nor Bronco appear in this story.) Small Bear and other Comanche search for game to feed their starving tribe in the dead of winter.

Comic - Cheyenne: The Ghost Trail

Bronco helps a woman bring her cattle herd to market but must keep his identity a secret since he might have killed the woman's husband in self-defense. (This is a comic retelling of the TV episode Wagon-Tongue North with Bronco replacing Cheyenne as the main character.)

Differences between the comic and the television episode:

  • Both Bronco and the sheriff from China Hat shoot at Del Swain so neither knows which bullet actually killed him.
  • Mrs. Swain is not expecting a baby, although she looks like she's holding a baby in a couple of panels?
  • There's an extra scene in the comic where Bronco sees Mrs. Swain off on a train.

Comic - Making a Cache

Bronco explains his method for making a hidden cache of supplies on the prairie. (Single-page, black and white comic with the byline "By Bronco Layne".)

Notes

  • While the comic is still titled Cheyenne, the main character is Bronco Layne, mirroring the Cheyenne television show when Ty Hardin replaced Clint Walker during the latter's contract dispute with Warner Brothers.
  • Visually, the comic character of Bronco is virtually identical to the Cheyenne comic character, wearing the same orange-colored fringed coat and brown pants. Effort is made to make the character's face appear similar to actor Ty Hardin and distinctly different from the Cheyenne comic incarnation.
