Apparently he used to be quite the ladies' man inbetween running away from various degrees of trouble

In the two months that he was in jail, Bean received many gifts of flowers, food, wine, and cigars from ladies in San Diego.

I was only able to find very few good images of him and ended up doing the avatar completely from this image, in case anyone's interested.

Re: ENTER! Misc. Av.Contest: Gunslinger legends

There's a fairly good pic in one of the Lucky Luke comic books (vol 31, at the end of the book)
And on this German site:http://rooschristoph.blogspot.de/2012/06/roy-bean.html
And you'll perhaps find a few new ones by googling in German: http://www.google.de/search?q=Roy+be...w=1280&bih=879


What about Rick? Doesn't he participate? There are quite a few celebs we didn't cover yet: Pocahontas (though being pacifist and from the East coast she might not count), Big Nose Kate, Billie the Kid, Butch Cassidy & Sundance Kid, Black Bart the rhyming robber, the Dalton Gang, Buckshot rogers, Johnny Ringo etc.
Then there was that woman who lived as a trapper and they found out her gender only when she had died - I can't recall her name.
And how about the real and fake Native Americans? Grey Owl (fake), Tecumseh (genuine), Seattle (prophetic) etc?
And since we have Sitting Bull, how about Custer? Davy Crockett? Daniel Boone?

Nice list. Locutus of Bored did a Billy the Kid one, though. Not saying I won't allow another one, but with so many great options left, why would anyone'd risk splitting the vote?!

And, no, Pocahontas doesn't count.

You're not suggesting a link between me and Brüderle, I hope.

No, it's because she wasn't a gunslinger and she doesn't have her own Lucky Luke comic.

Aw, crap. My power went out Friday night because of the hurricane and it just came back this morning. I came up with a great entry, too....

I think this is the first contest I've missed. Curse you, Nemo!

Sorry to hear that. I'd still like to see the entry you prepared.

Sure. Here she is, Wild West outlaw and Feminist Pearl Hart:



She became a 19th century celebrity based on her reputation for carousing, hedonism, stagecoach robbing, jailbreaking and her quote, "I shall not consent to be tried under a law in which my sex had no voice in making."

a woman after my own heart! I'm not so much the carousing type but hedonism is the spice of life
