Jerry Barton

First Appearance

Lone Rider #2 (June 1951)

Original Publisher


Created by



Back in his town of Charleston, Arizona, Jerry Barton was a bartender and the local constable. He was known for his stuttering manner of speech and his Stuttering Trigger. Stuttering Trigger was a man quick with the ladies, fast his fists, and faster with his guns. The fact that he stuttered didn't slow him down from beating men to an absurd degree, and shooting them to death at the drop of hat. The local jury system in Charleston seemed rigged in his favor when he shoots a man with a knife in the back.

One day, a pair of lawmen rides in. When one of the lawmen confronts Stuttering Trigger, Barton beats the man to his death. He partner best Barton, but too late to save his companion. Stuttering Trigger is convicted of murder in a federal court, and sentenced to death in the Yuma penitentiary.


Jerry Barton has red hair in the first story, Lone Rider #2. In the Lone Eagle #1 reprint, his hair is black.
