Western Gunfighters v2 #14 - Jim Steranko cover

Jim Steranko
Western Gunfighters v2 #14, 1973 - Jim Steranko's cover squeezes in multiple characters within the confines of a relatively small square. Black Rider, Apache Kid and Matt Slade reprints fill the interiors, but appear together in this scene. The warning sign at the bottom, complete with skull and venomous snake, is a nice metaphorical touch. Other artists in this issue include Bob McCarty (reprint). This is number 1 of 1 Western Gunfighters v2 issues with Steranko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Steranko or Western Gunfighters issues.
