Two-Gun Kid #51 - Al Williamson art


Two-Gun Kid v1 #51, 1959 - An ex-convict seeks revenge on a judge in this old western tale. Al Williamson's opening page depicts the criminal's furor at the judges ruling, his body struggling against the two bailiffs. The artist's style contemporary gives the story a cinematic look, greatly contrasting against other genre artwork of the era. John Severin contributes a tensely composed cover as well. This story was later reprinted in Mighty Marvel Western #37. This is number 3 of 3 Two-Gun Kid issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Two-Gun Kid issues.
