In this one shot comic, Frank Castle is re-imagined as a cowboy in the Wild West. After serving, with distinction, in the Spanish-American War, Frank moves his family to a ranch in New Mexico territory. His days as a rancher are to be short lived, though. Four no good hombres rustle up to the ranch looking for Frank’s gold. After killing his family, they tie him up to a wagon wheel and unsuccessfully interrogate him about his gold. He is left in the middle of the desert to die.

Frank attempts to make the twenty mile trek to town, with the wagon wheel still on his back. This brave cowboy succumbs to the heat, but, is rescued by a priest and two nuns. Frank recuperates and digs up his gold and cashes into in for an arsenal of weapons of the day. Upon seeing an image of a skull upon a cave wall, he paints the famous death’s head on his cowboy duds.
