ISSUE NO. 833
We conclude our look at Doug Wildey's Rio with "
Mr. Howard's Son
," originally published in a 1990 graphic novel from Comico. On the outskirts of town, Rio encounters a familiar face...
Nearby, two desperados plot a kidnapping...
And at this time, THE TALL MAN
(Rio's infrequently used nickname) enters the town...
In town... ANOTHER familiar (and much prettier) face!
(the one referred to in this story's title).
As they talk, the kidnapping is pulled off...
but the WRONG BOY is abducted.
The idiot henchman accidently takes
Mrs. Howard's son...
in the end, Rio rescues the kid...
Rio's creator, Doug Wildey, at the drawing table.
