Don't you hate it when the rattlesnake gets your gun?
Here's a really effective cover by artist Nick Cardy.
Bat Lash is one of several strong Western characters created at DC Comics in the late 1960s and early 1970s. (Other Old West characters from this period include Jonah Hex and Scalphunter.) Bat's series only ran 7 issues, so was not a commerical success. There were some good stories in that run, though, and Bat has hung around to become a regular (if only occassionally used) member of the DC Universe.
