With scarred gun-slinger Jonah Hex riding off into his own title, Sergio Aragones and Joe Orlando along with writer Michael Fleisher and artists Dick Ayers and George Evans produced a new outcast to headline Weird Western Tales # 38. Scalphunter was "a man who lived in two worlds but who was at home in neither." A white child who had been abducted by the Kiowa tribe, Brian Savage was raised as Ke-Who-No-Tay (He who is less than human). Framed for murder, Scalphunter evaded the U.S. Cavalry in between dispensing retribution against the real killers, who were cowboys that raided a Kiowa burial ground for gold, and meeting the dying biological father he never knew.
