Synopsis: "After missing out on the reward for the rogue swordswoman Inazuma, Gen coerces the reluctant Usagi to join him in pursuit of another outlaw. Little do they know that Stray Dog is after the same bounty and determined to get it. One person knows where the outlaw is, and he's willing to tell, but for a price! Aware he has landed himself in a profitable situation, this scheming individual plays Gen and Stray Dog off each other--leaving Usagi caught in the middle!"

Ah what fools these bounty hunters be. Talk about playing both sides against each other for your own profit only to fail in the end and lose it all. You cannot play this game for very long. To play the snitch only keeps you in the middle until eventually one or the other sides will give you an ultimate and final payoff. How long do you expect either side to remain gullible for your own profit? When do you cut and run if you believe you can still get more money? A funny situation for all involved, especially for us readers.
Gimme a home on the ol' prairie where I can sit in my rockin' chair reading my favorite old comic books of yesteryear!
