Billy the Kid, ca. 1879

Billy

The only authenticated photo of William Bonney, taken around 1879. “He was said to be friendly and personable at times, and it’s been said that he was as lithe as a cat. Contemporaries described him as a “neat” dresser who favored an “unadorned Mexican sombrero”. (Wikipedia) Note: the Wikimedia Commons image has been enhanced and mirrored.

Personally, I like Morris and Goscinny’s take better: Billy ends up getting his just deserts.
