Halloween Weird Western Image o' the Day: Ghost Town Showdown

Ghost towns are, of course, abandoned towns found out West.  A proper ghost town seems like it was just lived in and suddenly everybody just left, which is more or less how abandonment works.
Several western films have been named Ghost Town, often with a literal interpretation of a town that is inhabited by ghosts.  Today's image has a gunfighter blasting a ghost gunfighter, probably with magical bullets.
Looks pretty cool to me, pards.  Just another image I grabbed from a Deadlands manual.


  1. In the region of Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean where I come from, we have a ghost town, or rather a ghost village, called Val-Jalbert. Here's a picture:

    Of course, it does not come from the Old West, but still, it would be such a setting for a ghost story.

    1. Thank you for the URL. That is a most intriguing image. I rather like the little cupola as it reminds me of the Haunted Mansion at Disney World. Or at least it makes me think of it, even if they look quite different. Funny how the brain works, innit?

    2. And the amazing thing is that it is a real historical building. It looks so ghostly now.
