bugg masterson

Ol’ Bugg looks a little nonplussed, considering he is literally holding a smoking gun. I mean, he has to know how good a shot he was, right? He can’t be that surprised he won, right? Or is it because his opponent appears to be actually dead — quite a strange thing in Buggland, by all accounts.

Transcript:

A bugg, wearing boots (with spurs!) and a dashing gunbelt, is making this face: o_o while holding a smoking gun. To his left, we see half a bugg lying down, his own gunbelt apparently empty. The conclusion we are presumably meant to draw is that Bugg shot and killed his opponent.

The text reads: “Aprovul 16, 1881: Bugg Masterson fights his last gun battle … and no one knows if he was right about Han shooting first.”
