Weird Western Tales #14 - Alex Toth art

Weird Western Tales v1 #14 featuring Jonah Hex, 1972 - Although the cover features Jonah Hex, the highlight of this issue is Alex Toth's superb back-up story. A cowboy from the old west inexplicably ambles into the 20th century, finding a world quite different from his own. The pages are drawn horizontally, forcing the reader to turn the comic sideways. This format creates a mildly disorienting effect, reinforcing the story's theme. Perfectly drawn and masterfully paced, Toth's short story is an exceptional work. This tale was later reprinted in Jonah Hex and other Weird Western Tales #2. Other artists in this issue include Tony DeZuniga (Jonah Hex cover and story). This is number 1 of 1 Weird Western issues with Toth art and/or covers.
