The character of the Apache Kid, and his horse Nightwind, had first appeared the previous month, in Two-Gun Western #5. The Kid was originally Alan Krandal, who had been orphaned and was then raised by the Apache chief Red Hawk and taught that tribe's ways. He fought both white and Indian enemies when the need arose.
The character's adventures also ran in the titles Two-Gun Western and Wild Western. The artist throughout most of this book's run was Werner Roth.
