Daily Arc 007
Johnny Hazard and his girl Brandy are at the French Guiana airfield heading back to the States when they notice that their airplane has been been emptied of seats and is being filled with cargo, all without their okay. The freight manager shows him a contract with Hazard's signature on it but it is a forgery. The cargo is supposedly typewriters heading to Estantio in the next country, for which Hazard is to receive $2500. Hazard is intrigued with the mystery and decides to go along with it, especially when Brandy discovers the crates are loaded with rifles. And a very short fat man with bandoleros and two six-shooters. He calls himself Wild Bill Hiccup! Hazard's old 'friend', Side-Pocket Sam, is big time involved.
